ST27 Doctrine of Last Things Course Description:
This treatment of eschatology examines eschatological thought in the history of the Church. The major structural considerations for an understanding of redemptive history (including the already/not yet, the kingdom of God, and the millennium), and especially its last phases, are then considered. Finally, special questions are treated, including the gospel age, the imminence of Christ’s second coming, the resurrection, and the eternal state.
ST27 Doctrine of Last Things Course Objectives:
By means of the assigned reading, class discussion, course lectures, regular quizzes, and a final exam, the student will be able to understand and identify the major scriptural, historical, and contemporary issues with regard to the Doctrine of the Last Things and develop and express a biblical approach to those issues.
