AN ESCHATOLOGY TO LIVE AND PREACH: Pentecostal Issues January 2019

For Winter 2019, the topic is “Eschatology.” The centrality of an eschatological expectation of the imminent return of Christ for early pentecostalism is well known, but not the larger eschatological system of which it is a part. This course will look at eschatology from a broad biblical perspective: OT and NT, as well as the development of Apocalyptic Eschatology in Second Temple Judaism. The influence of various modern forms of apocalyptic eschatology on the Pentecostal tradition will be examined: Dispensationalism, Former/Latter Rain and Promise theology. Finally, the historic and current function of eschatology within Pentecostalism will be discussed, and the viability of a post-apocalyptic Pentecostalism.
