The Dawns Early Light: Rethinking Our Eschatology

by Dr. Kevin Chiarot

While many Christians think of Eschatology, or the study of last things, to be a study of future events, Dr. Chiarot challenges us in this lecture to reconsider our understanding.  Rather than viewing the "end times" as something one generation will experience around the time of Christ's second coming, we are encouraged to consider the ramifications of the incarnation and particularly of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  For, it is in the resurrection of Jesus that the "end times have broken into our time" so to speak.  New creation's dawn has begun in Him and we are called to live in its light.
