In order to obtain an understanding of the historicist school of interpretation, we would recommend the following study plan:
- Study the book of Daniel using an inductive Bible study method
- Study the book of Revelation using an inductive Bible study method
- Study other related eschatological passages in the Bible. These would include Matthew 24 and 2 Thessalonians 2, for example.
Go through the passages first by yourself so that you are not influenced by any author’s particular interpretation. Then compare your observations and understanding to what others have to say. In particular, we recommend the works of Rev. Dr. F.N. Lee at Historicism Research Foundation and the sermon series by Bill Mencarow as a starting point.
