Named after the vision that Daniel received by the Tigris River, this book is a commentary of Daniel chapters 10-12. It was written for those who are interested in a detailed description of Daniel’s last prophecy. While modern futurist interpretations place historical portions of this prophecy into the future, The Vision by the Tigris breaks new ground by clarifying those historical sections that have never been properly understood. Especially significant is its interpretation of Daniel 11:23-30. Here the author shows that these verses identify spiritual powers after Jesus’ crucifixion in verse 22. He then uses this new information to interpret “the time of the end” in verses 40-45. The following information is included in the book:
- It is interspersed with quotes, maps, charts, and timelines.
- It gives principles for interpreting end time prophecies.
- It uses the historicist method of interpretation.
- It uses typology to identify the spiritual powers after Jesus’ crucifixion.
- It connects Daniel 11 to other Bible prophecies.
- It examines Daniel’s experience, and admonishes the reader to follow Christ.
- It shows the prophecy’s connection to Jesus and His Church.
- It explains the ministry of Christ, the New Covenant, and the corruption and persecution of the Church.
- It reveals the great men of history, their kingdoms, and their wars given in the vision.
- It shows the involvement of the United States, the European Union, and the Moslem and Communist nations.
- It identifies the spiritual kingdoms of Israel, Babylon, and Egypt at the end.
- It unveils the conflict over God’s Law, explains the experience of His people, and shows their victory over sin and Satan.
For those who want a thorough examination of Daniel’s last prophecy, The Vision by the Tigris is the book to read.
