    David Brown, Scottish Presbyterian (August 17, 1803 -- July 3, 1897) was a notable 19th century minister, writer and Biblical commentator. He was one of the trio who, along with Robert Jamieson and A.R. Fausset, compiled the Jamieson, Fausset, Brown commentary on the Bible (his part was the Gospels, Acts and Romans). He served as Principal of the Free Church College in Aberdeen and as moderator of the Free Church of Scotland General Assembly (1885). He was one of the founders of the Evangelical Alliance and a director of the National Bible Society of Scotland. He wrote
    Christ's second coming: will it be pre-millennial?
    ; The Restoration of the Jews: The History, Principles, and Bearings of the Question; The Apocalypse: Its Structure and Primary Predictions; and Life of the Late John Duncan; among other works.

    "May that happy period soon arrive when the unclouded glory of divine revelation will shine from pole to pole; when men every where will see eye to eye, in all things that are connected with divine glory, and with their own eternal felicity."

    No, he was a premillennialist during his younger days, but he wrote his classic refutation of premillennialism (Christ's Second Coming: Will it be Premillennial?) in 1858 and his historicist postmillennial study of the restoration of the Jews in 1861. The JFB commentary was published in 1871, and his further historicist postmillennial study of the Apocalypse was written in 1891.

    Were Jameson and Fausset premillennialists?

    Andrew Robert Fausset (Irish Anglican, 1821 - 1910) was premillennial. Robert Jamieson (Scottish Presbyterian, 1802 - 1880) -- I'm not certain about his eschatological position.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
