Things have changed quite a bit from the beginnings of the Judeo-Christian religion.  That includes beliefs and expectations about the afterlife and the end of the world.  Does it matter that Abraham, Moses, and King David probably didn't believe in resurrection?  That some of the first Anabaptists attempted to fulfill the prophecies of Revelation with their own violent coup?  That the idea of Rapture wasn't a widely-held belief until the mid-1800s?  This sermon attempts a broad overview of how Christian eschatology (beliefs about The End) has changed and developed over time.

Read "History of the End" from Joe Heikman

We often dismiss the idea of a second coming and rapture theology but we forget to actually think about what we believe about the next step of the story. Perhaps it is time to put away some old ideas of the end, and to re imagine what type of second coming the Bible shares with us.

Read "Rapture Revelation" from Krista Loewen

When it comes to the future, what do we really know?  Sure, there are lots of things that we hope for, and the Bible has lots to say about the End and After the End (though maybe not as many details as some would like).  But what can we really know for sure?  And, do the stories we tell and the images we project about the future line up with what we already know of God?
