What is the Parousia?

This is the second in an end-time series by Dr. Sproul on the last days. What is the kingdom of God? Is it mainly about social issues, or is it something supernatural? What is the Parousia? In this message, R.C. Sproul warns against unbiblical views of God’s kingdom.

While most of us are conditioned to think of the Second Coming as the beginning of our escape or rapture from the world, nothing could have been further from St. Paul’s mind. Based on the Jewish hope of the Creator-God setting His world right, and the 1st-century context of Caesar as a returning king visiting his colonies, esteemed theologian N. T. Wright re-reads Paul’s words with fresh power and insight.
