The Beast, the Antichrist, and 666: An Alternative to Speculation by Paul Anderson
While these noted Johannine themes and other biblical texts have contributed to amazing paradigms of speculation over the years, this presentation will challenge some prevalent views while affirming others. When viewed in late first-century historical perspective, the relevance of these biblical texts becomes all the more striking. This presentation examines crises in the early church with timely implications for faithful discipleship in every generation—an alternative to speculation.
