The Christian Hope: Fall Adult Sunday School

The Christian Hope Fall Quarter Adult Sunday School Taught by Pastor Aaron

The Christian study of the end times is called eschatology (from the Greek eschatos, meaning last), and eschatology is about hope. The Christian hope is not a vague or blind wishing that things will get better. Instead, it is a hope grounded in the promises of God – striking promises of new life, new bodies, a new creation, a new kingdom, a new rest, the end of death, the end of suffering and sin, and the beginning of infinite blessings in the presence of God.

The Christian hope recognizes that evil is doomed, that the darkness of this age is being overcome by the light of the next, and that there is “an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time” (1 Peter 1:4-5). The Christian hope fixes its gaze on Jesus Christ, in whom our inheritance awaits.

Join us in the Fall Quarter Adult Sunday School as we fix our gaze on Jesus and explore the present-day significance of our end-time hope.
