Full course description
Eschatology is the study or doctrine of Last Things, the End Times; it encompasses all that the Bible teaches about the future of Israel and future of the world.
So, in this course, students will be studying passages in both the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and the New Testament. There are passages in almost every book in the Bible that deal with End Time events and the Kingdom of God.
The Book of Revelation is taught in a verse-by-verse format. This is the first of a two-part course and covers the introduction to Revelation as we as chapters 1-14 of Revelation.
No one teaches about the End Times like Dr. Fruchtenbaum; his book, Footsteps of the Messiah, serves as the main textbook for this course, however there are other required books and readings also.
