  2. The pre-trib rapture doctrine evolved in the 19th Century. Margared McDonald had a vision that Darby weaved into a doctrine. Read a good Bible commentary on 1 Thess., like F.F. Bruce or NICNT.

  3. Absolutely correct. It was Margaret McDonald, who influenced the powerful English parson Edward Irving.
    Later the cultist church, the Plymouth Brethren, headed by Darby, wove a fantastic theology around this, and Cyrus Scofield became the salesman of this stuff over in America.

    BTW.....Bruce was raised in a subset of the Plymouth Brethren, and openly disproved dispensationalism as well as pre-trib Rapture theories. His credentials outshine most Bible scholar alive today.
