Eschatology Class

Dr. Spear is teaching a class here at the Gibsonia Study Center (see the flyer attached on this post) on “The Bible and the Future.” Otherwise known as eschatology.

I’ve been trying to get these documentation assignments finished for classes, so I wasn’t able to pay as much attention as I really would have liked. He covered what Christians agree on and started an overview of the major millenial views.

“Jesus Christ, who ascended into heaven, will come back to earth, suddenly, personally, visibly, and in great glory.”

That much is pretty clear in the New Testament. The controversy is over the details of the nature of the 1000 years (mentioned in Revelation 20:2-7) and when it will occur in relation to the Second Coming of Christ. These views are known as: Historic Premillenialism, Dispensational Premillenialism, Postmillenialism, and Amillenialism.

I’ll be missing next weeks class as I plan to be home in Indianapolis for my week break. Oh, well.

    It would be interesting to attend this class.

    Actually, except for when the lab instructor burned the magnesium in the air, it was rather boring. Because we caused the reaction inside an almost-closed crucible, the only thing that lit up was the crucible turning red from the heat.

    I agree with Nathaniel’s, “It would be interesting to attend this class” comment.
