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.

Scot McKnight is known for his books, The Blue Parakeet, A Church Called Tov, The Jesus Creed, and Revelation For The Rest of Us.

Here’s some of what you’ll experience in this episode:

  • Explore the influence of Dispensationalism on American evangelicalism and its role in interpreting prophetic literature.

  • Identify potential issues arising from speculative readings of the Book of Revelation and prophetic texts.

  • Discover how the Book of Revelation serves as a guide for dissident discipleship and resistance.

  • Understand the significance of Tov in fostering a goodness culture within the church community.

  • Develop skills in navigating political discipleship and discernment to effectively combat oppressive powers.
