In theology it is known as the study of Eschatology. The study of future or final things. How will God wrap-up, or conclude history? Some of the subjects are: Christ’s second advent, the antichrist, the great tribulation, the battle of Armageddon, the future of Israel, the millennium, the rapture, the resurrection, the final judgement, the new heavens and the new earth, etc.
Genesis 1 – 11 is not a narrative of actual historical events as we usually define history (something that actually happened in time and space). Gen. 1 – 11 is seen as the equivalent of ancient near eastern creation and flood myths but devoid of most of the elements of paganism. In other words, it is only a work of literary genre. Does it matter?In this Briefing Outline it is our purpose to show that the preponderance of evidence, particularly from the Bible itself, is that Chapters 1 – 11, are to be interpreted as historical narrative and are foundational to the story of redemption and the trustworthiness of the rest of Scripture.
The postmodern paradigm has spawned many new philosophical and theological trends that affect orthodox, evangelical theology. The purpose of this briefing outline is twofold: For readers to be aware of these trends, and to be able to discern if any of these changes…

As you are no doubt aware, every year around Easter time the major networks, cable channels, and news magazines compete with specials seeking to discredit Christianity. Recently the Discovery Channel tried to shock Christendom with the news that Christ?s tomb had not only been found , but his wife and son?s as well. It was not a hoax, but neither was it serious scholarship. It?s producers had seemingly high hopes of dealing a fatal blow to the Christian faith by undermining the physical resurrection of Christ.
One of the claims we make as Christian apologists is that only the Christian worldview fully explains what is. In other words, it contains within itself the ability to answer all the major philosophical questions. In this briefing outline it is my purpose to demonstrate the vital importance of the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity as the necessary foundation to that worldview. It should, and must be, our primary dogma (starting assumption).
The Twelve Disciples, who became The Twelve Apostles put their lives on the line. All but one died a martyrs death. Very unusual behavior if they had not actually witnessed the resurrected Lord
