Commentary on "The Gospel Comes to Thessalonica"
Day 4: Tuesday, July 3, 2012 - Two Views of the Messiah
Today’s lesson explores the seeming contradiction in Scripture that describes a 'royal Messiah’ versus the 'suffering Messiah’.
The Quarterly lesson makes this statement:
'In ancient times, the Jews were confused about the first coming of the Messiah. Today, we find much confusion about the Second Coming, as well. What should this tell us about the need for truly seeking to understand Bible truth? Why can false doctrine be so problematic?’
The lesson author asserts that just as in the Jews were confused about the coming of the Messiah we find much the same confusion today about the Second Coming.
This is an arrogant position for Adventist to take concerning the expectations of born again Holy Spirit indwelt Christians since it is blatantly not true. The return of the Messiah, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is the central eagerly anticipation event of all Christians.
Here is a sample of what is really disputed:
