Rhamuel and the last of his family, Abranyah, travel their barren world, shack to shack, selling tinctures to keep a full belly and evading the dogmatists to keep their throats safe. Time has turned funny after The Whatever, an apocalyptic event that few remember and even fewer can explain, danger now as commonplace as the unrecognizable relics of war, and the madman Aphulan—along with an iron rule over his small township—may hold the answers. With a cure for The Sick and a passion to uncove ...
 
The Apocalyptic Gospel Podcast explores the Gospel as a first-century Jew would have understood it. A conversation about the Gospel, the Kingdom of God, or the Day of the Lord in the first century would have evoked a body of ideas not immediately present with a simple word study of these terms. In this weekly podcast, Bill, John, and Josh mine the Torah, Biblical Prophets, and Second Temple writings for the origin and development of these ideas as we help give context to this first-century J ...

Oh yeah, they never saw Snowpiercer. - Der…
 
In this episode we spend some time working through many of the parables of Jesus, which have a long history of (mis)interpretation. The parables are often mobilized as evidence for realized eschatology in the teachings of Jesus. However, when taken within the context of first century Jewish apocalyptic expectations the meaning and purpose of the pa…
 
In this episode we work through some of the main passages in the Gospels referencing the kingdom of God that are commonly used to support realized eschatology. Passages that describe the kingdom being “at hand”, the kingdom “coming upon you”, or the kingdom being “within you” are most easily understood within a Jewish apocalyptic framework. Rather …
 
We're back with another fun-filled episode of the podcast, and this week we have a heap of fresh topics to discuss, including answers to these burning questions: - What's this third A Quiet Place film coming in 2022? Is it part of a trilogy? Is it a spin-off? - Saw creator James Wan is working on a new post-apocalyptic horror movie, but will it be …
 
In this episode we briefly survey the history of interpretation concerning “the kingdom of God” in the New Testament. In particular, the last century has seen a surge of studies grappling with the first-century context of this controversial phrase. Various theological camps wrestle with the idea of the kingdom in different and often conflicting way…
 
In this week's podcast, Derek, Stephanie, and Shawn have joined their podcasting powers once again to discuss the week's biggest and best post-apocalyptic news. Derek wants to debate the merit of The Matrix trilogy, but Shawn hasn't seen any of the films. This is becoming a pattern, Shawn. Do you even own a TV? Do we need to start a GoFundMe? The t…
 
In this episode we present an introduction to the "kingdom of God" as understood by a first-century Jew: the Davidic, messianic kingdom as presented by common Jewish expectation at the time. Beginning with 2 Samuel 7 and the prophets then moving through the Targums and other Second Temple literature, we present a brief survey of the kingdom of God …

This episode is a teaching that Bill Scofield gave in a small group setting. Beginning with an overview of how Jews came to think about eschatology in the first century, Bill goes on to develop John chapter 3 where he illustrates that Jews, including Jesus and his followers, maintained an apocalyptic eschatological framework. We hope it is an encou…
 
We're back with another exciting adventure into podcast land with Derek, Stephanie, and Shawn bringing you the latest post-apocalyptic news. Shawn starts this one off with some news about the first trailer for The Midnight Sky starring George Clooney. The whole gang is looking forward to this apocalyptic space movie when it releases December 23 on …
 
In this episode we develop the quote of Amos 9:11-12 in Acts 15. Rather than a redefinition of the prophets’ words about the Gentiles flowing to Jerusalem to worship the God of Israel, James quotes Amos 9 to affirm that the Gentiles turning to God in his time accords with the vision of the “eschatological pilgrimage” of the nations to Zion in the a…
 
Have you seen Love and Monsters yet? Shawn starts this week's podcast with a glowing review of the newly released post-apocalyptic film from Paramount and gives some bold predictions along the way. Steph clears up the confusion between the two War of the Worlds TV shows that came out last year and tells a funny story about how she and Derek acciden…
 
In this episode, we take a deeper dive into Acts 15 to understand the primary question that is being asked and the answer that is being offered. We analyze three particular points in the passage that often create confusion: circumcision (v. 1, 5), “conversion” (v. 3), and the “yoke” (v. 10). Rather than being an anti-Judaism or anti-Torah council, …

In this episode we give an overview of Acts 15 and the Jerusalem Council where the apostles gather to discuss the issues brought up recently by many Gentiles turning to the God of Israel. Rather than redefining the hope of Israel, the apostles conclude that the Gentiles can be saved from the wrath to come and inherit eternal life without becoming J…

In this episode we explore Peter’s vision of the “great sheet” filled with unclean animals and the events which followed. Peter’s interpretation of the vision and the first sermon towards a Gentile audience are often interpreted within a redefined narrative of redemptive history which sees God establishing a ‘new people’. We revisit the events and …

In this week’s episode we discuss the language that the apostles used to describe the effects of the crucifixion of the Messiah. Terms like justification, redemption, propitiation, and reconciliation were understood within the context of first-century Jewish apocalyptic thought, rather than in contrast to it or disconnected from it. Passages like 2…

The apostles understood the cross within a first century Jewish apocalyptic worldview. As seen in 1 Cor. 15:3, the interpretation of the Messiah’s death was handed down by the apostles and revolved around Isaiah 53 and the Levitical sacrificial tradition. Thus Paul’s gospel centered on Jesus Christ, “who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from…
 
Good afternoon my faithful listeners! I'm so glad you've tuned in for another installment of the afternoon radio news. I'll be your host, and, I must apologize, we have nothing but bad news today. If you're looking for anything else, the current events of the day are, I'm afraid, no place to look. my deepest apologies. I heard a rumor the other day…
 
In this episode, we talk through Peter’s use of Scripture in Acts 2. Rather than redefining or realizing Psalm 16 and Psalm 110, Peter employs an apocalyptic hermeneutic (i.e. approach to interpretation), which simply seeks to understand the Torah, Writings, and Prophets in light of their ultimate end. The Messiah was crucified, but God raised him …

I'll not mention it again. You'll get cryptic or subtle clues, but nothi…
 
In this episode, we dive into the beginning of Peter’s explanation of the events of Acts 2. Rather than a redefinition of the ‘last days’, Peter affirms that their expectations were in accordance with the apocalyptic tradition. God promised, expressed in the citation of Joel 2, to pour out his Spirit before the coming Day of God and that all who re…

Common ideas in the church today associate Acts 2 and the giving of the Spirit as “the birth of the church” or a break from legalistic Judaism, but the apostles viewed the events of the day of Pentecost as a strong affirmation of Jewish apocalyptic expectations. In this episode, we begin to look at Acts 2 and what it meant for the early followers o…

In this episode, we discuss the Jewish apocalyptic context of Acts 1:1-11. Instead of correcting the apostles’ expectations concerning the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, Jesus simply corrects the timing. The witness to the nations in verse 8 is understood within the presupposed Jewish apocalyptic narrative. God is the one driving history, an…
 
Romans 1:1-6 provides a unique glimpse into how Paul understood his own mission to the Gentiles. As discussed in last week’s episode on the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20), Paul understood his calling within the commonly presupposed Jewish apocalyptic narrative of redemptive history. Jesus’ resurrection confirmed his Davidic messiahship, and Paul…
 
In this episode, we discuss the Jewish apocalyptic context of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). Messianic authority in Jewish literature is tied to divine judgment on the day of the Lord, and Jesus assumes the two-age framework of redemptive history in verse 20. In this light the discipleship of the Gentiles is into (rather than out of) the Je…
 
Acts 17 offers a unique picture into the Gospel that the Apostle to the Gentiles believed and proclaimed throughout the Jewish diaspora. In this episode, we see Paul offering a survey of history in order to explain the coming Day of the Lord as a means of calling Gentiles to repentance and faith. We survey the concept of the Day of the Lord briefly…
 
As we briefly survey ‘the Gospel’ in the New Testament writings, we find that the phrase imports a body of pre-existing Jewish ideas. We touch on its origins in the prophetic writings and in later Jewish apocalyptic literature to highlight how a Jew in the first century would have heard John the Baptist, Jesus, or one of the Apostles using this Jew…
