The meaning of Revelation of Christ in the Bible
(From Easton's Bible Dictionary)
the second advent of Christ. Three different Greek words are used by the apostles to express this, (1) apokalupsis (1co. (I Corinthians 2th 1:7; I Peter 1:7,13); (2) parousia (Matthew 24:3,27; I Thessalonians 2:19; James 5:7,8); (3) epiphaneia (I Timothy 6:14; 2Tim 1:10; 4:1-8; Titus 2:13). There existed among Christians a wide expectation, founded on Matthew 24:29,30,34, of the speedy return of Christ. (See MILLENNIUM .)
