The Gentile Times Reconsidered


The idea that the Gentile Times referred to at Luke 21:24 form a period of 2,520 years has led to speculation and disappointments among many who expected Christ’s return during the past two centuries. How did this belief originate and develop? This book presents the historical evidence, along with a remarkably extensive study of ancient Assyrian and Babylonian records which date the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylonian conqueror Nebuchadnezzar, as well as an enlightening study of the Biblical prophecies regarding the “70 years” of Babylonian domination of Judah.
