DC 403 - Week 3

Having wrapped up our 2 weeks on denominations, we now turn to a 3 week look at eschatology. The first of these sessions focuses on the millennium. Here's how the workload might break down:

Monday - Read Daniel 7-12, Malachi, and Psalms 116-117, and comment
Tuesday - Read "Living in the Light of Jesus' Return," the article by Sherri Langton, and answer questions 1a-c (3 questions)
Wednesday - Memorize Philippians 1:20-24 - "I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed but will have sufficient courage, so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet, what shall I choose? I do not know. I am torn between the two! I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far, but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body." Review previous memory verses, such as Philippians 2:1-3, Hebrews 12:1-2, and 2 Peter 3:18. If you're enjoying the Scripture memorization, try to add v25-26 to the Philippians 1 passage: "Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me."
Thursday - Answer questions 2, 3a-d, and 4a-b (7 questions), and review memory verses
Friday - Answer questions 5a-d, 6, 7a-b, and 8 (8 questions), which includes reading chapter 17 and appendices 10-12 of Boyd and Eddy's Across the Spectrum, and review memory verses
