As we approach Advent once more


Making sense of the end of the world teaching morning

As we approach Advent once more, we are confronted with issues around the End of the World. What was Jesus talking about in Matthew 24 and Mark 13? Did he and his earliest followers expect the world to end in their lifetime? What about popular ideas like the 'rapture' and the 'tribulation'? Are they found in the New Testament?

Come and join me on Saturday 28th October from 9.30 to 12.30 on Zoom to explore all these questions and more! Book on Eventbrite here. 

This teaching morning will explore the language the New Testament uses about the 'end of the world' (also known as 'eschatology') and why it is so important to understand it properly. We will look at:

a. The background to this language in Jewish thinking

b. Jesus' teaching in Matthew 24 and Mark 13

c. The Rapture—what is it, and does the Bible really teach it

d. What the New Testament says about 'tribulation'

e. The beast, the antichrist, and the Millennium in Rev 20

f. The significance of the State of Israel

We will be debunking some common myths, and seeing what the New Testament really teaches. And we will explore the pastoral importance of getting our thinking right on this important subject. There will be a chance for some interaction and for asking questions.
