Description:

Thy kingdom come. Christians frequently recite these words. But what is God's kingdom? This question has fascinated the faithful for more than two millennia. Throughout history we have pondered our ultimate salvation and the end times, from St. Paul's eschatological epistles to modern bestsellers like the Left Behind series. Now, this brilliant course introduces you to that history and practice of eschatology, or the study of the final events in history. With award-winning Catholic professor David Zachariah Flanagin as your guide, you will discover renewed hope as you learn about salvation. You will begin by exploring Jewish beliefs and apocalyptic literature about God's redemption of the world. Next you will turn to the life and ministry of Jesus and the early church, which adapted those eschatological ideas to herald Jesus as the Messiah sent to inaugurate God's kingdom on earth. You will then address the legacy of biblical hope in Christian history. How should you interpret the apocalyptic images of the Bible: as literal descriptions or symbols? This question has led to contemporary end-times speculation, which has deep cultural implications in Western culture. Eschatology is thus as important as it is fascinating. To study this topic is to learn what it means to be a Christian—a believer filled with hope in the life of the world to come.
