The study of the second coming of Jesus is a fascinating subject and is one of the controversial doctrine among Christians. Christians take position in a wide spectrum of views about the time and nature of the second coming of Jesus. Many hold strong convictions based on the view they hold, without really knowing what the other views teach about the Second Coming of Jesus. Many others are confused about which view to believe in.
