Revelation & Absurdity

"It would be absurd (not to say cruel) for John to write a letter to persons in such circumstances which not only ignores their difficulties, but reveals numerous details about events supposed to transpire hundreds of years in the future during a seven year tribulation period at the end of the church age. You may be sure he did no such thing. The book is contemporary, not future, in emphasis."

-Jay Adams in The Time is At Hand, 48.
