Did You Know? (Russell v. Rutherford)

…Russell and Rutherford disagreed on the Pyramid teaching?

Charles Taze Russell was famed for teaching that Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza was “inspired by Jehovah God.” He wrote about it extensively and used the Pyramid’s measurements as a guide for much of his “end times” chronology described with great detail in his Studies in the Scriptures volumes.1

“Pastor” Russell died in 1916. Just twelve years later his successor, “Judge” Joseph F. Rutherford, took a totally opposite position, crediting the Great Pyramid to Satan the Devil. He actually described the Pyramid as being “Satan’s Bible.”2

Decades later there are many “end times” Bible Students who still believe that the Pyramid will play a major part in determining when the world political systems will be destroyed. Long after his death, Charles T. Russell continues to have followers who study and still believe in his books. On the other hand, Rutherford and his writings have faded into obscurity and have no influence or credibility – not even for Jehovah’s Witnesses.

  1. Yes. I’m a Bibke Student and we have a historian that said he got rid of the Great Pyramid because it didn’t agree with Rutherfords 1918 date. We still believe the Pyramid. Fascinating study.
