Revelation of Christ

the second advent of Christ. Three different Greek words are
used by the apostles to express this, (1) apokalupsis (1 Cor.
1;7; 2 Thess. 1:7; 1 Pet. 1:7, 13); (2) parousia (Matt. 24:3,
27; 1 Thess. 2:19; James 5:7, 8); (3) epiphaneia (1 Tim. 6:14; 2
Tim. 1:10; 4:1-8; Titus 2:13). There existed among Christians a
wide expectation, founded on Matt. 24:29, 30, 34, of the speedy
return of Christ. (See MILLENNIUM T0002551.)
