    Throughout my time in this course, I definitely gained a lot of education and insight into the many different religions of the world. Not only did a learn many new facts regarding religions I was not aware of, but I also learned a great many things about Christianity and developed a better understanding of the story and start of the most dominant faith of the world. When it came time to pick a research subject, one celestial event that came to mind that I have definitely heard of, but was…

    Rowland dissects the theology and apocalyptic hermeneutics of famous theologians, Thomas Muentzer and Gerrard Winstanley, so that political discourse does not make facile Biblical interpretation. The apocalyptic language of Daniel is of significant scholarly interest, especially in regards to the biblical metanarrative, but Rowland advocate for a rebalance in Danielic exegesis. Rowland poignantly comments that the scriptures are not for appropriation, political or otherwise; of this he critiques…

    Revelation” and “Everything that rises must converge” were written by the same person but, this doesn't mean they have the exact same plots. Both, of these writings are unique in their own way, they also have many differences and similarities. To begin with, the differences between “Revelation” and “Everything that rises must converge” is big since one of the readings is taking place in a bus and the other is taking place in the waiting room of a clinic. In “Revelation” the main character is…

    Regarding the second half of verse 24, “he (The Antichrist) will distribute plunder, booty and possessions among them”: It is difficult to tell who exactly the “them” is. It does not follow to apply “them” to “one’s ancestors”, who are usually aged, if not dead. Is it possible this is a reference to The Antichrist’s blood relatives? I do not know. I do know who Donald Trump has placed in the highest positions of his TRUMP Organization: his oldest two sons and daughter; Donald Jr., Eric, and…

    To me, the book of Revelation seems strange and difficult to understand because it is the only apocalyptic piece of literature I have read in the past. I always have doubt in my mind how the first audience understand this weird book. However, after I have read some of the apocalyptic literatures, I am coming to see the book with a new light and more acceptable to the experiences in it. I note there are visions in several of the apocalyptic literature that are in the book of Revelation such as…

    first volume of Robert Jenson’s Systematic Theology resolves two theological difficulties in the doctrine of God by innovatively binding together eschatology and pneumatology (advancing what I will refer to as Jenson’s “eschatological pneumatology”) in order to develop and sustain material proposals concerning God’s triune character. In terms of eschatology, Jenson’s project critically opposes theologies which are overdetermined by protological thinking, or God’s reality as source and origin,…

    to the present, but because they represent two signal inheritors of the Protestant theology of crisis. Accordingly, Cone and Jenson will be compared in terms of how they relate eschatology to history. The argument is in short that Cone and Jenson both inherit a set of problematics concerning the relation between eschatology and history found in dialectical theology’s language of crisis, and develop their projects from this common point of departure. They differ in terms of how crisis is…

    then, as I suggested above, is crucially not a critique of eschatology, but a standpoint that looks to its language, knowing that the worlds against which and towards which eschatologies strain are internal to the distant and intimate words and stories of the people who tell them. This is to say, we are not forced to take leave of the question of eschatology in the descent into the ordinary; precisely in this descent we find that eschatology must be a question about the ordinariness of people…

    Eschatology gave birth to Christian awakening and the kingdom of God. And eschatology gave new meaning and hope to the Christian audience. Contextualization in the New Testament church is a process in which the missional church addresses and readdresses its values and needs to serve the audience…
