One Verse Proves a Pre-Tribulation Rapture
An Examination of II Thessalonians 2:3 – Apostasy? Or Rapture?
by Gary Stearman and Pastor Andy Woods
Rapture skeptics seem to delight in asking a provocative theological question. “Can you show me one verse in the entire Bible that proves a pre-Tribulation rapture?” Pastor Andy Woods has taken on the “challenge” of deciphering what some call, “The Golden Passage of Scripture” in Second Thessalonians 2:3. Gary and Andy examine the Greek word “apostasia,” translated as “falling away” by the KJV translators, but translated as “departure” by the seven previous English Bible translations. Why was meaning of the word changed and what was the motive?
This one linguistic change affects the whole meaning of the passage, a critical passage that announces the arrival of the Antichrist and strongly suggests a definitive, pre-trib rapture. Join Gary and Andy in a fabulous, hour-long, “Studio 2” conversation on on the rapture of the church and the coming Kingdom Age. I can guarantee you—you’ve never heard anything like this before!
