Week 4: Inaugurated Eschatology: What Does All This Means Here and Now?
How should we live in the light of God's in-breaking future? This podcast begins with a sketch of what it means to say that the Kingdom of God has come "here and now and not yet." We then turn our attention to three verbs that help us to live within that Kingdom: we prepare, we announce, and we anticipate. Within this framework, we understand how self-giving love is the language of the future that God is bringing, and how miracles and justice-work are all ways of pointing to the Kingdom that has begun and will culminate at Christ's return.
