The Apocalypse
or
"The Day of the Lord"

by

E. W. Bullinger, D.D.



Second Edition
(Revised and Corrected)
1909

In this creative and masterful commentary, the Book of Revelation is treated, not as a book to be interpreted by man, but as God's own interpretation of the future to us, and what will take place in "the Day of the Lord". You will be challenged in every chapter, on almost every page, to confirm your views of interpretation, or to accept the view E.W. Bullinger is presenting. See for a short overview "The Plan of The Day of the Lord".

Commentary on
REVELATION

door

Dr. E.W. Bullinger



In 1902 verscheen de eerste druk van het commentaar van dr. E.W. Bullinger op het bijbelboek "De Openbaring", getiteld "The Apocalypse" or "The Day of the Lord", later uitgegeven als "Commentary on Revelation" .

Zie voor een kort overzicht van "De Openbaring": "Het Plan van De Dag des Heren"

Dit commentaar van E.W. Bullinger verschilt in hoge mate van elk ander commentaar op het bijbelboek "De Openbaring". Als u een commentaar zoekt dat de traditionele standpunten volledig verlaat, dan heeft u deze nu gevonden. De volledige titel luidde: De Openbaring of "De Dag des Heren". Dit is het belangrijke thema van "De Openbaring". Dr. E.W. Bullinger laat ons zien, dat wij de inhoud van dit bijbelboek dienen toe te passen op "De Dag des Heren" en toont ons dat de zeven gemeenten van Openb. 2 en 3 zeven, letterlijke, Joodse gemeenten zijn, die nog moeten komen. In zijn solide-schriftuurlijke stijl geeft Dr. E.W. Bullinger ons een vernieuwend en baanbrekend commentaar op de Apocalypse, die elke traditionele uitleg uitdaagt om te trachten de gezichtspunten van dr. E.W. Bullinger te weerleggen.

Dit commentaar mag u niet terzijde laten liggen. De enorme bijbelkennis en schrijfstijl van Dr. E.W. Bullinger zal de lezer direct treffen en de lezer meevoeren tot op grote hoogte en de lezer een verbazingwekkende visie geven op IsraŽl's verleden, heden en toekomst.
