New Academy Lecture Posted (Amillennialism 101 Series)


Here's the link to the second lecture in my series "Amillennialism 101."  The lecture is entitled "Interpreting Bible Prophecy" and deals with how our hermeneutical presuppositions influence the way we interpret prophetic passages.

Dr. Riddlebarger,

I have read both "A Case for Amill." and "The Man of Sin". I enjoyed both of them very much, but I must admit, your discussion of the book of Daniel left me scratching me head, in both books. I'm just not sure I can follow your flow of thought. I am withholding judgment until I know I have properly understood them, but they were confusing, to say the least.

Its armageddon week on the International History Channel, and they flashed Kim's book "Man of Sin" as an example of fundamentalist dispensational hysteria inspired by Hal Lindsey.

Having missed the Already/Not Yet boat (the historical normal view). iHist pitted freaks against geeks on the show "Antichrist" as rapture-swooning fundies battled "sane" scholars over details in Daniel and Revelation. If the fundies had made any points that weren't pure emotional conjecture, they were edited out. The scholars made all of the good points, but not without first marrying them to bad points and insisting that the Bible was ultimately false (aka Daniel in 2nd century bc), while ignoring the wealth of textual evidence that puts daniel in 6th century b.c (try yamauchi's persia and the bible).

I had trouble at first, but it was because I wasn't bothering to look up all of the verse citations. (I am used to lazier reading.) If he'd quoted all the verses in "A Case" it would be more lay-accessible.

Try it with all the citations in front of you, if you haven't.

Dr Kim -

Your lecture was very eye opening, especially with regards to the sort of (non-eschatological) teaching that I used to hear in dispensationalist circles growing up.

Do you think that the dispensationalist viewpoint tends to end up underplaying biblical theology and thus leads to everything in the OLd Testament (paradoxically) being interpreted moralistically?

please I beg you, launch these lectures on a podcast format, because that means I will finally be able to listen them (when I'm not sitting in front of my laptop) as well as countless others.

This will be a great way to share the love and truth!
