What Jesus Really Said about the End of the World

Overview

In Matthew 24:34, Christ seems to indicate the end will come within a "generation," yet many generations have passed since then, and the world is still around.

More troubling still, if Jesus was wrong in this prediction, he might have been wrong about other things. And so nothing less than Christ's authority as a divine and infallible teacher (and the authority of his Church) hinges on correctly understanding his word about the Last Days.

Overview

In Matthew 24:34, Christ seems to indicate the end will come within a "generation," yet many generations have passed since then, and the world is still around.

More troubling still, if Jesus was wrong in this prediction, he might have been wrong about other things. And so nothing less than Christ's authority as a divine and infallible teacher (and the authority of his Church) hinges on correctly understanding his word about the Last Days.

In What Jesus Really Said About the End of the World, author David Currie (Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic) examines Christ's end-times prophecies in an attempt to get to the bottom of this profoundly important question. Using the tools of biblical scholarship, the wisdom of the Church Fathers, plus Old Testament history and typology, he presents a fascinating and highly readable interpretation of Jesus' words-echoed by St. Paul and other early Christians-and resoundingly answers the charge that Christ predicted an end that never came.

In so doing he rebuts both skeptics (who crow about Jesus' "mistake") and many Evangelical Christians (who resort to extrabiblical theories like the "Rapture") while giving comfort to other Christians, who have been confused or embarrassed by this seeming blow to Christ's credibility.

Let us not look for signs of the end to be troubled by, the Lord says to us, but instead trust in his mercy and power.
