  1. In listing the signs of the Second Coming of Jesus in Matthew 24, you omitted verse 15. The abomination of desolation still has to appear, and that is at least 3 years before the return of Jesus. However, the entire 70th week of Daniel 9 has not yet begun, so that makes it at least 7 years away. But things are getting hotter in the Middle East. The end of this age is not is not that far away, I believe.

      Hi John. As I set out in the introduction (see below), I understand the verses I did not include as applying to the first part of the disciples’ question, and having been fulfilled by 70 AD.

      ‘In a previous article, I explained the structure of the primary biblical passage concerning this subject, Matthew Chapter 24. In short, Jesus answered two questions in one:
      1. When will the temple be destroyed?
      2. What will be the signs of the second coming and the End of the Age?
      The Lord’s answer to the second question is in verses 4 to 14, 23 to 33, and 36 to 51’.

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
