    When does the "rapture" happen? I'm not talking about a specific date, but in general. Do we go through the Tribulation, or does it happen before?

    Welll, the rapture isn't in the bible, and nobody gave it any serious thought until the 1800's, when it took off as an idea in America. I don't really believe it'll go down like all the rapture movies say it will.

    Yes, the concept that the rapture will occur before the Tribulation is a very recent concept circa 1800's. Historically, the church has affirmed the idea that the Rapture will occur since the early church as it appears to be a Biblical concept. However, when it occurs in the Eschatological timeline is not as clear Biblically. I think the strongest argument Biblically for when it occurs would be after the Tribulation.
