Anglican ultra-dispensationalist theologian
Ethelbert William Bullinger AKC (December 15, 1837 – June 6, 1913) was an Anglican clergyman, Biblical scholar, and ultradispensationalist theologian.
Ethelbert William Bullinger was born on December 15 in Canterbury, England. He was a direct descendent of the great Swiss Reformer Johann Heinrich Bullinger, a covenant theologian, who succeeded Zwingli in Zurich in December of 1531.
Bullinger was educated at King's College, London. He was a recognized scholar in the field of biblical languages. The Archbishop of Canterbury granted him an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree in 1881 in recognition of his biblical scholarship.
Some of his best known works are The Companion Bible, Number in Scripture, Word Studies on the Holy Spirit, The Witness of the Stars, The Book of Job, Figures of Speech Used in the Bible, Great Cloud of Witnesses, The Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the English and Greek New Testaments, How To Enjoy the Bible and Commentary On Revelation.
Dr. Bullinger believed in and taught the pretribulation, premillennial rapture. He is also considered an untradispensationalist because he taught that the gospels and Acts were under the dispensation of law, with the church actually beginning at Paul's ministry after Acts 28:28.
Dr. Bullinger died on June 6, 1913, in London, England, leaving behind a legacy of works to help in the study of God's Word.
Works by E.W. Bullinger
Ethelbert Bullinger was a prolific writer. This book--originally published under the title Apocalypse--is his verse-by-verse commentary on the book of Revelation. Throughout, Bullinger keeps his attention on both the immediate context of a verse, and the remote contexts of the rest of Scripture. He frequently addresses other views, and explains why he believes them to be poor understandings of the text. Some of Bullinger's other views--for example, his "ultra-dispensationalism"--come through the text every now and again, providing a more holistic look at Bullinger's theology. Bullinger provides countless footnotes with additional research, providing readers the opportunity for further exploration. All-in-all, many readers have found their personal beliefs challenged and shaped by this book.
