We know a new ‘Roman’ leader, the Antichrist, is coming, but when in Rome? When in Rome, as in what period of Rome’s history does the Bible refer to? The old Roman Empire had many forms, borders changed, so when in Rome? Some recent world events have got me thinking that we may have some new clues.
