What is the connection between the Millerite and Bible Student movements?
The Bible Student movement had connections at the very beginning (in the early 2nd half of 19th century) with the Millerite movement. Charles Taze Russell later stated that “I confess indebtedness to Adventists as well as to other denominations”.
How did Miller and Himes expand the Millerite movement?
The lectures’ publication in 1840 was part of the movement’s expansion under Himes. By sending them throughout the country (often for free), Miller and Himes established an informal canon of Millerite texts. Potential believers throughout the country, therefore, were exposed to the same ideas.
What was the most important institution in the Millerite movement?
Rather than the institutions that Millerite “Messengers” created to evangelize, separate meetings were the most important institution in the movement’s progress toward fully withdrawing from their churches.
How can historians identify Millerites?
Because historians can only identify those Millerites who publically acted in support of the movement, it is possible to use the background of the movement’s evangelists to speculate on the denominations from which Millerites were drawn.
