3. Linus Torvalds has many thoughts on the issue. A comparative approach. With the goal of detailing in the thinking of the reader a critical nature of our position we suggest closer just to five points determinants of training of an eschatological identity. Length of the Millennium Premilenialismo argues that the Millennium is a literal years duration, 1000 after the second coming of Christ, thus taking the Greek word chilia queliteralmente means 1000, while the Amilenialismo sees this as the time between the first and second goings of Christ. Some say that the 1000 years must be taken literally by the fact that Juan used exact numbers as 144000, 7 churches, and 12 tribes of Israel.Pero, the other party write compares 1000 a day (Psalm 90: 4, Ecc 6: 6, 2 Ped. 3: 8). Also, the apocalypse is a highly symbolic book, and interpreted literally, 1000 is to be negligent to the apocalyptic style. Figurative uses of numbers in the apocalyptic literature is the best option possible, therefore 1000 should be understood as defined unit of time, yet without specifying in this case, the age of the Church is the proposal put forward by the amillennialists.
Numbers in Revelation have a function theological eg. 7 = full, 4 = cosmic completeness (planned whole image of the Earth), 12 = number representing God’s people to choose. Chronology El Premilenialismo argues that from chapters 19: 11-21: 8, we see a number of visions as sequence because they occur between the destruction of Babylon and the new Jerusalem (Cp. 18 and Cp. 21-22), and the use of the term then saw aren’t any sequential structural breakdown, and therefore the 1000 years are after the return of Christ. Here it is important to highlight that the writer says a descontinuidad in its narrative and the hermeneutic premilenialista not lotiene into account. The Amilenialismo view this text as being a recap: e.g. the age of the Church played again from a different perspective, because it has no ningunsentido talk about protecting the Nations at 20: 1-3, when Christ has already destroyed them by his coming (19: 11 – 21), and the four reports of the cosmic destruction (6: 12-17, 16: 17-21, 19: 1-21, 20: 9-11) point to a recapitulation of the theme of the last judgment and Christ’s victory.
