9781938983108: What Jesus Really Said about the End of the World

From the Mayans to Martin Luther to modern doomsday preachers, there s a long list of people who predicted the end of the age and got it wrong. Does Jesus belong on that list? After all, in the Gospel of Matthew he seems to indicate the end will come within a generation, yet many generations have now passed and the world is still around. Was he mistaken, then, and was the early Church fooled by his mistake into expecting the Second Coming in the first century? In What Jesus Really Said About the End of the World, author David Currie author of Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic examines Christ s end-times prophecies in an attempt to get to the bottom of this profoundly important question. Using the tools of biblical scholarship, the wisdom of the Church Fathers, plus Old Testament history and typology, he presents a fascinating and highly readable interpretation of Jesus words echoed by St. Paul and other early Christians that harmonizes with Catholic tradition and resoundingly answers the charge that Christ predicted an end that never came. In so doing he rebuts both skeptics (who crow about Jesus mistake ) and many Evangelical Christians (who resort to extrabiblical theories like the Rapture ) while giving comfort to other Christians, who have been confused or embarrassed by this seeming blow to Christ s credibility. Currie also unlocks for you the most important message behind Jesus prophecies and warnings, which is not to inspire fearful calculations about the day and hour but to remind us that our own end will surely come, so we must be always ready. Let us not look for signs to be troubled by, the Lord says to us, but instead trust in his mercy and power.
