3. Why is the Rapture Described as “Mystery”?

     I Corinthians 15:51 says “Behold, I shew you a mystery”.

     The word mystery is from the Greek word "musterion" used 27 times in the New Testament.  The NT usages does not give the idea of something mysterious or baffling, but something unheard of and unrevealed. The rapture is a brand-new New Testament truth!

     Moreover, during Old Testament times, people thought there was no way out of life except through death.  Everyone expected ultimately to die. But now Paul calls all Christians to wait for something other than death: the Rapture.
