    Here is the tract Parable of the Penny. Discussing Matthew 20:1-16 in the style of Volume 7

    It mentions the date 1980 in regard to the Jews

    "The date 1980, mentioned on pages 61, 62, probably marks the regathering of all of Fleshly Israel from their captivity in death."

    Also it has some corrections to Volume 7

    OMG it came true!!!

    City of the Living Dead (Italian: Paura nella città dei morti viventi , also known as The Gates of Hell) is a 1980 Italian horror film from director Lucio Fulci. It has numerous alternate titles, such as Gates of Hell. It is the first installment of the unofficial Gates of Hell trilogy which also includes The Beyond and The House by the Cemetery.

    After Father William Thomas (Fabrizio Jovine) hangs himself in a cemetery, the gates of Hell are opened. Zombies with the abilities of super strength, teleportation and levitation appear and start killing off people in a remote town. Psychic Mary Woodhouse (Catriona MacColl) dies of what appears to be fright at a seance, and is buried – only to revive, buried alive, in her own coffin. Investigating reporter Peter Bell (Christopher George), who is intrigued by the case, is present at the grave-site and rescues her – only to learn it is all fated as part of a prophecy in the Book of Enoch. The death of the priest is only the beginning, and they both must travel to the rural town of Dunwich, New England, and close the portal to Hell before All Saints Day, or the spirits of the dead will overtake the earth.

    1980 is a date of definite historical significance. How prescient of those early Watchtower writers to have known that in 1980, a young woman by the name of Madonna Ciccone would decide to break out on her own and work towards her own recording contract! Within a few short years of this historical event, she was riding high with massive hits such as "Like a Virgin" and "Material Girl".

    So were they saying there would be a literal regathering to life on earth or a figurative one?

    And in light of what they expected for themselves how did the jews fit the plan?
