Jesus' predictions about the future provoked conflict in his own time and continue to provoke controversy today. David Tiede argues that in order to understand Jesus' teaching about the future it is necessary to study the meaning of his affirmations to early Christians and how his message spoke to the religious traditions of Israel. Important passages concerning the future are examined closely, with special attention given to the book of Revelation.
