The "Latter Days"

The phrase “latter days” was used by the OT prophets to refer to the time of fulfillment.  It is used in the NT to refer to the entire age between Christ’s first and second comings and to refer to the period immediately preceding the consummation.
Peter uses it both ways in the same chapter in 1 Peter 1:5, 20.
