Reflection Questions
  • List four hermeneutical/exegetical principles for interpreting apocalyptic literature.

  • Make a comparison chart of the millennial views discussed by your readings. In your opinion, which view best fits the biblical material? Which issues are held in common by all views? What may be divisive?

  • Based on your readings, what would you say results when biblical eschatology is divorced from missions?

  • In order to finalize your acceptance, your mission agency has asked you to state your personal view of the millennium. What will you say?

  • From the readings, list and then analyze possible motivations for mission work. Check the items that have been most influential in the development of your own motivation.
