Eschatology

OVERVIEW

A 16 week study of Eschatology: Understanding the End Times. We will consider various views held by Christians on the end times, after which a case will be made for the Amillennial position. We will also consider various approaches to the book of Revelation, after which a case will be made for the idealist position as presented by Dr. Dennis Johnston in his commentary, “Triumph of the Lamb.” Our main text will be “The Momentous Event” by W.J. Grier.
