E28: The Kingdom of God and the General Epistles

Download this episode

In this episode we discuss the clear emphasis on Jewish eschatology in the General Epistles of the New Testament. We work through a number of passages that demonstrate the apostolic strategy of utilizing apocalyptic expectation to motivate discipleship. Because the world will not always function in the way it currently does, the apostles encourage disciples to live according to what is to come. In doing so, this leaves modern-day disciples an excellent example to follow – whether we are leading a large church or a small group of disciples.
