This course presents a view of apocalyptic messages from the New Testament, based on a preterist interpretation of scripture. (Preterism is a Christian eschatological view that interprets prophecies of the Bible as events that have already happened.) The course begins with a brief general discussion of apocalyptic literature and a review of pertinent first century historical information. Biblical views of the Antichrist and predictions of the apocalypse will be discussed, along with apocalyptic views from the synoptic gospels [Mark, Matthew, Luke], 1 and 2 John, 1 and 2 Peter, and 1 Thessalonians. The majority of the course will focus on The Apocalypse of St. John the Divine (Revelation). Regardless of your belief, evangelical or progressive, you should find this course interesting and informative.
