Course Info

Apocalyptic books, heavenly visions, future, secrets, and mysteries... How can this not capture our attention?  There are so many questions about the future, the end of days, and ancient Jewish perspectives and beliefs on these matters. The entire Bible can be enhanced through the study of ancient Jewish thinking found in Jewish apocalyptic books.  This course is presented in a seminar style (which was recorded with a live audience).

The course assembles a series of interactive discussions between several of our faculty members: Yeshaya Gruber, Nicholas Schaser, Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg, Pinchas Shir, Tupa Guerra, and Carlos Santos Carretero. The professors engage with selected texts from the Qumran War Scroll, Book of Revelation, Books of Enoch, various Son of Man, and Metatron Traditions, and an array of other interesting ancient texts.

Faculty members even take some questions from the audience as they consider apocalyptic ideas from the past from various vectors.  Instead of a single lecturer, as in most courses, these recordings feature a panel of experts who bring their combined knowledge to reflect on texts as they interact with each other's views and opinions. You will not be disappointed by these insightful conversations!

    The Mother of Harlots is the source of spiritual adultery within God's people. Revelation 17:15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
