Rev. David Brown, D.D. (1803-1897), was Professor of Theology at Free Church College, Aberdeen, Scotland, 1857-1887, and was elected principal in 1876. He served as moderator of the General Assembly of the Free Church in 1885. He is remembered as one of three editors of the popular Commentary, Critical, Experimental, and Practical, on the Old and New Testaments (6 vols., Glasgow, 1864-70); the other editors were R. Jamieson and A. R. Fausset. Brown contributed the sections on the Gospels, the Acts, and the Epistle to the Romans.

In 1870, Brown authored a series of articles for The Christian, a weekly newspaper published in London, on The Blessed Hope, in which he presented his defense of the Post-millennial view of prophecy. The Historical or Protestant view had been previously explained in a series of articles written by P. H. Gosse, and Futurist view was supported by Rev. Richard Chester. Below is the first article by Brown.
