The Reign of Heaven (Part 1) … What on Earth? The Heart of the Gospel of Matthew?

Perkins School of Theology

Join Dr. Allen as he leads participants through an examination of the first gospel in the New Testament — the Gospel of Matthew — using the lens of its eschatology, that is, its theology of the end of times and the return of Christ. Modern readers often miss how strong an apocalyptic worldview this gospel offers. Participants not only will discover how much the Gospel of Matthew emphasizes eschatology, but they also will uncover clues for a non-literal way to understand eschatology in the 21st century.
