By Frank Turek on April 15, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I have a Doctorate in Apologetics and am the co-author of a couple of apologetics books, including I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. In my doctrinal program I was taught the dispensational eschatological view popularized in the Left Behind series. While I knew that view had its problems--including its treatment of "this generation" in Matthew 24:34--it wasn't until I read the The Apocalypse Code did I understand the key to interpreting end-times prophecy. It is this: we cannot understand NT prophecy unless we have the background music of the OT playing in our minds. In other words, the key to interpreting the NT's prophetic passages is often the OT.

Matthew 24 is a prime example. For their model to work, dispensationalists must say that "this generation" in verse 34 refers to something other than the people standing before Jesus at the time. Why? Because in addition to predicting the destruction of the temple (which we all know occurred in 70 AD), Jesus appears to be predicting his second coming ("The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky. . . . They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory."). Dispensationalists will say that part obviously didn't happen in 70 AD, so "this generation" must refer to something other than "this generation." The problem is, on all four earlier occasions in Matthew, Jesus's use of "this generation" seems to always refers to the people alive at the time. It doesn't refers to a future generation.

Hank's treatment of this passage is eye-opening--in fact, it provided me with a complete paradigm shift.

For the past five years, I've appreciated how much Hank has taught me in the areas of theology, the Bible, and differences between orthodoxy and non-orthodoxy. In the first 17 years while on the radio, Hank hesitated to articulate his views on eschatology while he was in careful study of the subject. In the last 3 years, Hank has worked diligently on The Apocalypse Code and has shared different aspects of his eschatological views on his radio shows with well-informed experts in the areas of Christian Zionism and the Book of Revelation and Dispensationalism. Hank realizes that the debate over eschatology is really founded in a debate over hermeneutics; the art and science of Biblical interpretation. Hank wisely explains his hermeneutic first before sharing his views on eschatology. The main benefit to the reader is to learn a Bible study method that has obviously produced great results for Hank in the understanding the entire Bible.

I will offer my evaluation in the various subtopics that are presented in The Apocalypse Code(abbreviated TAC)

Bible Interpretation--- TAC teaches the Bible student how to notice literary genre and literary devices such as metaphor, simile and hyperbole. In his customary way, Hank uses acronyms to teach the precepts. The point is not whether we take a text literally or spiritually, but rather that OT types and shadows ultimately become NT realities because of Christ.

Critique of the Bible Prophesy Movement--- TAC does not endorse the "Bible Prophesy Sequence" that was developed in the late 1800s and made popular in the 20th century. The futurist view of the book of Revelation has enjoyed much popularity in the 20th century mainly due to the efforts of authors who have marketed sensational books on Bible prophesy.

I highly respect Hank Hanegraff, and my bookshelf is lined with his books. If Hank speaks, I listen. In this case, his principles for interpreting end-times passages are something every Christian should take to heart. However, I feel that his treatment of the subject matter was overly narrow to the point of undermining his point.

People may recognize me as the author of "Before God's Wrath: The Bible's Answer to the Timing of the Rapture," which is considered one of the "classic" defenses of the prewrath rapture. Since its publication almost a decade ago, however, readers have flooded me with questions. Some of those questions (unbeknownst to the askers) have forced me to deal with fundamental weaknesses in the entire premillennial scheme. This has made me willing to at least give non-premils like Hanegraff a fair hearing.

Okay, convince me. The result? This book reinforced my existing concerns, but it provided no satisfactory solutions.

If you take ONLY the passages Hanegraff discusses, then this is a powerful presentation for the fulfillment of Jesus' Matthew 24 prophecy in the first century. But there are internal contradictions and huge omissions that ruin the book for me.

Hanegraff criticizes futurists, for example, for placing a 2000-year gap between the disciples' question in Matthew 24:2 and Jesus' answer in verse three. This is a legitimate point. However, he then argues that the destruction of the temple was the fulfillment of Matthew 24:31, but ignores the "end of the world" context from there to the end of the chapter. Was Matthew 24:32 ff. fulfilled in the first century? If so, how does it fit the historical context? Is its fulfillment yet future? If so, how does Hank get there from v. 31? He never says.
