Revelation of Christ

Revelation of Christ - the second advent of Christ. Three different Greek words are used by the apostles to express this,

(1) apokalupsis (1 Cor. 1;7; 2 Thess. 1:7; 1 Pet. 1:7, 13);

(2) parousia (Matt. 24:3, 27; 1 Thess. 2:19; James 5:7, 8);

(3) epiphaneia (1 Tim. 6:14; 2 Tim. 1:10; 4:1-8; Titus 2:13). There existed among Christians a wide expectation, founded on Matt. 24:29, 30, 34, of the speedy return of Christ. (See MILLENNIUM .)
