What is “the Rapture”? The popular series of book and movies “Left Behind” give the impression that it’s about Christians getting taken away (to Heaven) and non-Christians being left behind. But when we understand it correctly, we find that it’s not about the good people disappearing: it’s about the good king returning. And this is why we should live in the light – looking forward to when Jesus will return.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 12 November 2017.
