Humans are fascinated by the unknown and Christians are not exempt. The Bible’s descriptions of end-time events have captivated the imaginations of many Christians. Can Christians really identify the Antichrist or the mark of the beast? Will Jesus set up a future, earthly kingdom? How did the early Christians interpret these passages? In this course, David Bercot uses the writings of the early Christians to help modern Christians interpret Bible prophecy. He will discuss the rise of Dispensationalism in the early 1800s and the impact of this teaching on Western Christian thought.
