This is the first message in an end-times series by Dr. Sproul on the last days. Eschatology—or the study of the “last days”—is full of heated debates. In this message, R.C. Sproul looks to Jesus’ own words to bring clarity to this topic. Why is it important to understand biblical prophecy?
Here are six reasons Christians should take eschatology seriously:
1. The study of end times warns the unbeliever of coming judgment.
2. The last days is a major part of the biblical account.
3. We are called to heed and declare the whole Word of God.
4. Future fulfillment of prophetic events fascinates people.
5. Believers are encouraged by a clear understanding of the end times.
6. Proper eschatology gives perspective into the tribulation of this age.
