The Millennium (Revelation 20:1-10), Pt. 1-3

In this series of three episodes, we address the matter of the 1,000-year reign, also known as the millennium, as expressly mentioned in Revelation 20. In so doing, we offer a more detailed case for the interpretation known most popularly as amillennialism.


Pt. 1: The Four Views on the Millennium

In the first episode, we overview the four main positions as it relates to the millennium: (1) dispensational premillennialism, (2) historic (or classic) premillennialism, (3) postmillennialism, and (4) amillennialism.

Pt. 3: New Testament Arguments for Amillennialism

Finally, in this third episode, we consider other New Testament arguments against a literal, futurist, premillennialist position and in favor of a symbolic, “church-age” interpretation of the millennium.

What Are Deacons? (CrossWay)


Key Passages: Passages that refer to “deacons,” using this word “servant” in a more official capacity to refer to a position within the church, are 1 Tim 3:8-13 and Phil 1:1. Other passages that possibly refer to deacons are Acts 6:1-7; Rom 16:1.

1 Timothy 3.8-13 – 8 Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. 9 They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13 For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
