Apocalyptic Literature

Course number: BS4102     Credit hours: 3 hrs

In this senior biblical studies course, students will study the nature of apocalyptic literature and see its roots in the prophetic writings. The course will trace redemptive themes from non-apocalyptic writings into the apocalyptic genre, and ultimately to the book of Revelation. Students will also familiarize themselves with biblical, prophetic and apocalyptic themes from Daniel, Joel, Zechariah, Isaiah, and Ezekiel. Most of the course will focus on the Book of Revelation as both prophetic and apocalyptic literature, paying attention to the original purpose and setting of the book, and discovering applications for the reader and the church today. Particular attention will be given to the culmination and advancement of major biblical metanarrative themes.
