Rapture is a Bible study examining the doctrine, “Jesus the Christ is returning to the air to remove his New Testament church from the earth.” The study examines the validity of that essential doctrine through those scriptures that present the rapture as a fact. The study also interacts with Reformed theology’s denial of the rapture and a literal great Tribulation. The author’s views of the timing of the rapture are part of the study. Two appendices explore Jewish wedding and Enoch analogies to the rapture.
