This is our Q+R episode for the Day of the Lord theme. Thank you to all the people who submitted questions!
We answered six questions:
Q1. timestamp - 2:40. The Day of the Lord can be a sensitive subject, so how do you have good and respectful conversations with others about the Day of the Lord?
Q2. timestamp - 12:30. What is the spectrum of views that Christians have on the Day of the Lord and what is the view the Bible Project is presenting?
Q3. timestamp - 17:20. What is the role of divine violence in the Bible? Why does Jesus seem so nice and peaceful in the New Testament but God seems mean and violent in the Old Testament?
Q4. timestamp - 47:45. In Revelation 19, The blood on Jesus’ robe is before the battle. This seemed to be a main point in the Day of the Lord video by the Bible Project. Why is this significant? Q5. timestamp 121:13. What is Jesus talking about in Matthew 24? And what is the deal with people disappearing? Q6. timestamp 132:25 - How should Christians think about staying or migrating in different parts of the world that may be more oppressive than others?
