As per discussion today in Yeshiva... Any ancient texts should have their interpretation into English questioned; BUT this interesting enough to note that a pre-trib rapture may have had earlier roots than some scholars suggest.

Here is the outline of a much longer study.


Biblical Rapture - some evidence of Torah and Early Church theology?

1.       HaShem would not bring judgement for the sake of 10 righteous (see Sodom).  Those who are made righteousness in Yeshua would need to be gone – either through death or rapture (see Enoch).   Big difference between tribulation and judgement tribulation.
a.       Isaiah 1:9 also refers to how small the elect would need to be to allow judgment.

2.       Zephaniah 2:2-3

3.       Isaiah 26:19 – 21

4.       Noah was taken out of the world 7 days before the destruction and remained above the destruction.

5.       Abraham watched the judgement from the heights.

6.       Lot was taken away from the Judgement – not through it.

7.       Joseph took a bride before the famine.

8.       Rahab is brought out of Jericho before judgement

9.    If post-trib is correct – who would be left to rapture since, “and ALL those who live on the earth will worship the beast,” (Rev 13:8).  Either it means all or it doesn’t mean all.   No righteousness left on the planet (or the very little ‘elect’ - Isaiah 1:9).

12.    The “elect” are gathered (Greek: epistrpho) by angels instead of being caught up/raptured (Greek: harpazo).

13.    Early historical texts include: 
a.       Clements of Rome 68-97AD
b.       The Shepherd of Hermas (95-150)
c.        Irenaeus (c. 180)
d.       Victorinus (Well known by 270 and died in 303 A.D.)
e.        Brother Dolcino (d. 1307)
f.        Joseph Mede (1627): Clavis Apocalyptica
g.        Increase Mather (1639-1723)
h.       Peter Jurieu (1687)
i.         John Gill (1748)
j.         Morgan Edwards (1742-1744) the Founder of Brown University
