In this series the term "Dispensationalism"
refers to the theological system invented in the 1830's by Plymouth Brethren
founder, John Nelson Darby (Nov. 18, 1800 — April 29, 1882). While there
may be controversy over whether he was the first person to conceive of the
pre-tribulation rapture and two distinct peoples of God doctrines, it is certain he
played a huge role in systematizing and promoting
dispensational theology. His doctrines are found in
C. I. Scofield's Old Scofield Study Bible—copyright
1909 and 1917 and are the foundation for other dispensational works.
This series of charts and
articles is published to make you aware that J.N. Darby marked his
bible translation, The Holy
Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby,
and his theological writings with Theosophical/occult
vocabulary and doctrines.
