It was fascinating to read the thoughts and interpretations of scripture from such a brilliant thinker. Isaac Newton delves into the writings of ancient historians to show fulfillment of the prophecies in the book of Daniel. The greatest fulfillment was the the coming of the Messiah which was to happen 62 sevens or 434 years after the rebuilding of the wall and streets of Jerusalem in Nehemiah's day, 4278 Julian date, or 434BC. 434 years after Nehemiah finished rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, ...more

One strikes most people first is Newton's fascination with alchemy; what strikes people second is Newton's commitment to Christianity, albeit Unitarian, and the his careful study of the Bible.

Observations, only republished recently within the last couple decades, is a fantastic look into the mind of Sir Isaac Newton as he labors over the prophecies in the Old Testament, Daniel, and the New Testament, Revelation.

In our post-intellectual society, with science and faith seemingly at odds, it has often occurred to me that many of the people arguing on both sides of the debate are woefully ignorant, for in my estimation, there is no true schism between real science and real faith. Indeed, it seems that many of those who are most vocal in the debate in favor of "faith" have not even read their Bibles, and many of those who are most vocal in favor of "science" base their arguments more on their faith in "scie ...more

First published in 1733, six years after he died, republished in 1991, Of religious and historical value, Isaac newton took bible prophecy as serious as his scientific principles of gravity, planetary movements and mathematics. Very interesting reading but in my reprint you must get used to the old English lettering such as S and F's looking the same and also B and H's. He writes several chapter and verse notes on pages and also switches from english to latin without warning wich i cannot read. ...more

Interesting and understandable interpretation of Scripture considering that a literal Israel was not existent during Newton's time. The history presented throughout the book is very thorough. His commentary of Daniel is noteworthy. This book helped me understand why so many people are confused about the idioms found in the Book of Revelation.
