Revelation: Seeking Discernment Over Speculation with Scot McKnight
“Instead of predicting something, the Book of Revelation gives us a template to discern the presence of political corruption in our world today.”
In this episode, author and theologian Scot McKnight explains the problems with Dispensationalism, a largely 20th century phenomenon, as he guides listeners toward a more practical, Christ-focused approach to the Book of Revelation.
