Abstract While the Millennium as described in Revelation 20 is the penultimate terminus in the premillennial dispensational end-time scheme, not much attention has been given by scholars or commentators to its precise nature. Scant mention is made of the nature of human life during this period. Claiming fidelity to absolute literalism, yet lavish in artistic license, three authors have recently plotted fictional accounts of what they imagine will happen after Christ returns to earth to reign for 1000 years. These novels are 1000. . .a Novel of the Millennium by Salem Kirban, Kingdom Come by LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins and Thunder in Paradise: Satan’s Last Storm by Jonathan Cash. This article seeks to draw out a correlation between these animated accounts and the text of Revelation 20, and in a step further, to examine their apparent resemblances to ancient Iranian texts in the post-exilic period.
