Welcome to the stunning conclusion of this two-part series about the end of time!
This episode focuses on four truths about the end times that matter far more than any particular perspective on how God will fulfill his eschatological promises.
In the process of exploring these four truths, the dynamic duo considers how different views of the millennium have developed and changed throughout Christian history.
In the end, your intrepid cohosts reveal their own views about the end of time, and they spend some time considering how the pains of this past year have awakened a new yearning within them for the return of Jesus.
Warning to parents: Garrick kicks off this episode by attempting to kill a phoenix with a wooden knife. Please do not attempt this at home. Garrick is a trained professional who almost has a Ph.D. Due to Garrick’s gratuitous act of attempted violence in the early moments of the episode, Timothy recommends that parents cover young children’s eyes while listening to this portion of the program, unless your children are driving a vehicle or operating heavy machinery while listening to the podcast in which case you’re probably not the type of parent who cares about protecting your children from violent images anyway. Thankfully, Garrick’s felonious efforts fail, and the episode improves from that point forward. Also, “Murder Phoenix” would be the perfect name for a death metal band.
The new cover art for this season was created by Dani Wallace (daniwallace.myportfolio.com).
