The Last Hour

Greg Beale is a renowned, Reformed, New Testament scholar, who teaches at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. This video excerpt details Beale’s response to a clarifying question regarding the tribulation period, the Antichrist, and the end times. Beale embraces the amillennial interpretation of the book of Revelation, which is a view that I don’t hold. That being said, I find myself in agreement with him on some of these matters. For example, I agree with Beale that we’re in the last hour or the last days. I also agree with him that Christ’s first coming inaugurated the last days. Plus, I sympathize with his charge to pastors, laypersons, and the church over seeing the tribulation as a present reality rather than solely relegated to the future. Just as there are hints of the age to come in the present through the person and work of the Holy Spirit, there are hints of the future end time rebellion through the spirit of antichrist, too.
