Apocalyptic Dimension of Early Christianity
Sunday January 6 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In this lecture, we move into the world of early Christianity, which emerged from the rich matrix of ancient Judaism. Indeed, Jesus’s relationship to the different traditions of Judaism, combined with his own complex character, complicate our task of examining how the apocalyptic worldview was taken up and transformed by early Christian writers in the New Testament. In this lecture, we’ll look at how the legacy of Jesus redefined classic Jewish apocalyptic thought and placed Christians at a juncture between the present age and the age to come.
