Eschatology, the study of end times, is one of the most debated subjects in Christianity. Believers hold different positions on important topics like the rapture of believers, a seven-year tribulation period, and the nature of the millennial reign of Christ. In this course, five preeminent theologians and New Testament scholars put forth their perspectives on eschatology:

  • Darrell L. Bock—Pre-tribulation Premillennialism
  • Douglas J. Moo—Post-tribulation Premillennialism
  • Sam Storms—Amillennialism
  • Peter J. Leithart—Postmillennial Preterism
  • N. T. Wright—New Heavens, New Earth Eschatology

After hearing each side of the eschatology debate, you’ll have a better understanding of the different eschatological doctrines Christians hold about the end times and be able to explain the various issues involved when studying Christian eschatology.


Upon successful completion you should be able to:

  • List key Scriptures that influence people’s understanding of the end times, rapture, judgment, and Revelation
  • Understand and summarize the issues involved in eschatology
  • Describe and give support for the different views of the millennial reign of Christ on earth
  • Explain the different positions surrounding the timing of the rapture and the tribulation

Dr. Darrell L. Bock, research professor of New Testament studies and professor of spiritual development and culture at Dallas Theological Seminary, serves as editor-at-large for Christianity Today, and is on the board of Chosen People Ministries and Wheaton College. From 2000 to 2001, Dr. Bock served as president of the Evangelical Theological Society.

He has earned international recognition as a Humboldt Scholar for his work in Luke-Acts, historical Jesus study, biblical theology, as well as with messianic Jewish ministries. He has published articles in the Los Angeles Times and The Dallas Morning News and is a well-known author of over 30 books. His publications include Studying the Historical Jesus: A Guide to Sources and Methods, Jesus According to Scripture, an NIV Application Commentary on Luke, Breaking the Da Vinci Code, and commentaries on Acts and Luke in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT) series.

Dr. Douglas J. Moo, professor of New Testament, teaches at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. For over twenty years, his ministry was based at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His academic interests revolve around the interface of exegesis and theology.

Dr. Moo seeks to model to students a rigorous approach to the Greek text that always asks the “so what” questions of ultimate significance and application. The Pauline and General Letters have been his special focus within the NT canon. In the next few years, he will be writing commentaries on Galatians and Hebrews, a Pauline theology, and a theological and practical book on creation care.

He has also been active in his local church, serving as elder most years, teaching and preaching to the church, and conducting home Bible studies. Also very rewarding has been his service on the Committee on Bible Translation, the group of scholars charged with revising the text of the NIV and with producing the TNIV.

Sam Storms earned a ThM in historical theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and a PhD in intellectual history from the University of Texas at Dallas. He is the founder of Enjoying God Ministries, senior pastor of Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and a former visiting professor of theology at Wheaton College. He is the author of over two dozen books and currently serves as president of the Evangelical Theological Society.

Peter J. Leithart is president of the Theopolis Institute—a Birmingham, Alabama-based leadership training institute focused on the Bible, liturgy, and culture—and teacher at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Birmingham. He earned his PhD from the University of Cambridge and is the author of several books, including the volumes on Revelation in the International Theological Commentary series.

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N.T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

    Most of this was pretty well done. I think the weakest part is N.T. Wright explaining 'New Heavens and Earth' It felt like he kept saying the same thing and never really explained the view other than 'we will be with Jesus'. It sure seems that he doesn't see things as describing actual places or events, it's all imagery.

    Interesting that the Pre-Wrath premillennialism view is NOT represented in this course. Editorial bias?

    So excited for this! Going to be teaching a 14 week class on Revelation in 2018 and this will be a good resource on Revelation 20 with the different views.

    i think it would be better to determine from the Bible what is truth, rather than study4 or 5 different views on end times.there is only one way to salvation, so there should only be one way to interpret these passages. To have validity one must have a consistent method of interpretation (hermeneutic) and without contradiction from any other scripture, and must never be governed by a preconceived theology.
