  • John Edwards on Matthew 24:40
    It seems that even though many hold these verses to be the or a cornerstone for the rapture, dialogue with other Bible scholars do not bring up the "rapture " in their discourse. Adam Clark 1825 states "The meaning seems to be, that so general should these calamities be, that no two persons ... should both be able to effect their escape and that captivity and the sword should have a complete triumph over this unhappy people. " No where in Clarks commentary does he say, "This is the lift off of the saints before Christs ' second coming. " So what are we to know, is there a "rapture " or is there not? I am still looking.
