Day of the Lord
|"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible
day of the LORD come."
"For yourselves know perfectly that the
day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night."
1 Thessalonians 5:2
John Brown (1858)
"It is quite plain that in our Lord's prediction the expressions "the end," and probably "the end of the world," are used in reference to the entire dissolution of the Jewish economy. The events of that period were very minutely foretold, and our Lord distinctly stated that the existing generation should not pass away till all things respecting "this end" should be fulfilled, This was to be a season of suffering for all; of trial, severe trial, to the followers of Christ; of dreadful judgment on His Jewish opposers, and of glorious triumph to His religion. To this period there are repeated references in the apostolical epistles. "Knowing the time," says the Apostle Paul, "that now it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand." "Be patient," says the Apostle James; "stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh." "The Judge standeth before the door." Our Lord's predictions must have been very familiar to the minds of Christians at the time this was written. They must have been looking forward with mingled awe and joy, fear and hope, to their accomplishment: "looking for the things which were coming on the earth;" and it was peculiarly natural for Peter to refer to these events, and to refer to them in words similar to those used by our Lord, as he was one of the disciples who, sitting with his Lord in full view of the city and temple, hears these predictions uttered. (Expository Discourses on 1 Peter, vol. ii. pp.292-294)
Rivka Nir (2003)
"One may also include within this group (pseudepigraphic-apocalyptic
literature) the literature of the Qumran sect, which expresses
conceptual and linguistic relations and ideological and theological
characteristics similar to those of the pseudepigraphic and apocalyptic
literature. Like the apocalyptic literature, the Qumran sect's
theological focus was on the eschatological anticipation of the
approaching end of days, on the war between the forces of light and the
forces of darkness, and on the appearance of the expected messianic age.
Similar to the apocalyptic literature, the Qumran scrolls expressed
absolute negation of the historical Jerusalem and temple. The sect
anticipates a new Jerusalem and a new temple in which atonement will be
achieved, not by means of the flesh of burnt-offerings and the fat of
the sacrifices, but by a spiritual sacrifice "of lips of justice
like a righteous fragrance" (1QS ix 4-5). The scrolls of this
mysterious sect also include chapters and fragments of works from the
apocalyptic literature (such as the Book of Enoch, the Testaments of the
Twelve Patriarchs, the Book of Jubilees, etc.), which likewise betray an
ideological proximity to the world of Christianity." (The
Destruction of Jerusalem and the idea of Redemption, p. 13)
