Hebrews, James, and 1 Peter

Dr. Walter Taylor, Trinity Lutheran Seminary

As the Christian church continued to grow, it found itself in new witness settings that raised new questions. What does it mean to be faithful witnesses when enthusiasm is lagging, people are in need, or Christians are being rejected by their society? Hebrews, James and 1 Peter provide models of how Christians are able to witness in such situations.

Daniel, Apocalyptic, and the Early Jewish Period; Revelation

Dr. Walter Taylor, Trinity Lutheran Seminary

Daniel was written in a difficult time in which the Jewish people were confronted with religious, political, and cultural annihilation. To understand Daniel, we need to quickly survey the history leading up to the writing of this book.

Revelation has been frequently misused. It has been divorced from its historical setting and understood as a book of secret codes that program how God will act at the end of time. Revelation does tell us how the story will end: It will end with the defeat of all evil and with God united with God’s people.
