This article discusses the idea of the millennium—when it starts and ends. It briefly notes the various views on the millennium, and opts for a view known as "realized millennialism," or amillennialism. The author shows how this discussion is directly connected to how one views the book of Revelation, and the meaning of the number 1,000 in Revelation 20.
