The Case for a First Century
Edition: Second revised
a book by Lynn Schuldt
From the back cover:
Were the end times 2000 years
Learn the facts. Then decide.
Nearly 2000 years ago, the first Christians lived in the last days,
and the end was at hand in their immediate future. Jesus warned them of
things to come in their own generation; and when they saw all those things,
they would know the end was near. The origin of "end of the world" prophecies
was this series of signs meant for those who lived 2000 years ago. Most
theologians claim all those things have not happened; and therefore, the
end time is expected in our future. Most evangelicals are waiting for Christ
to return a second time.
Ms. Schuldt's carefully documented book proves that all
those things happened, historically, to those people nearly 2000 years
ago in their future and in their generation. The end time was therefore
future to them, but past for us. Evangelicals ignore this view because
they maintain that no one living when Jesus described the things to come
lived to see all those things come to pass. However, scriptural and historical
references in this book show the first Christians did see all those things
come to pass.
How all Bible prophecy has been fulfilled.
When the end times were.
Who the Antichrist was.
What the millennium was.
When the kingdom of God began.
How the seven year tribulation theory was created from Bible verses.
Lynn Schuldt is an author and researcher specializing in Bible prophecy
and history of the Roman Empire. Her persistent investigations during the
ten years of writing Prophecy Paradox: the Case for a First Century End
Time uncovered abundant evidence for first century fulfillment of prophecy.
This book is supported by extant Greek and Roman history in conjunction
with biblical history. Sources include The Life and Works of Josephus,
a history of Rome by Dio Cassius, the Dead Sea Scrolls and many others.
This book is unique in that the final climax is set in A.D.79 rather than

Dilemma: time statements: Jesus provided a first century time frame
for His second coming.
Second Coming: This list of New Testament verses shows consistent biblical
intent that first century Christians would live to see both a literal and
visible return of Christ to gather His elect.
Christianity: New evidence is turning up that Jesus did indeed return
for His elect, in power and glory during the first century. In our attempt
to place the second coming of our Lord in OUR future, rather than the generation
of the Apostles, are we creatively altering the Bible to suit our own preference?

for Tough Christians If Jesus preached He would return a second time
in the first century, perhaps we should consider He was right.
