    till rapture

    still on《THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION》:

    “And by the weekend he was due back,we had enough rocks saved up to keep him busy till rapture. ”
    what exactly does "till rapture" mean?

    thanks!

    Re: till rapture

    It literally means 'until the end of the world'. In Christianity, the 'rapture' is the coming of Jesus, which is supposed to happen shortly before the end of the world
