Judgment? What Judgment?Kingdom, Grace, Judgment (Capon, 2002)Book 3, Chapter 7: God’s Action in HistoryBook 3, Chapter 8: The Eye of the HurricaneBook 3, Chapter 9: The Deluge of Judgment by MercyBook 3, Chapter 10: The Waters of Judgment RoseStories with Intent (Snodgrass, 2018)The Wicked TenantsThe Wedding Banquet and the FeastThe Eschatological DiscourseMatthew 21-25Luke 19-21Throughout these chapters in Matthew (and to some extent, in Luke), Jesus was getting ready to be arrested by the authorities and killed. As part of his teaching, he engaged in what is known as The Eschatological Discourse or the Synoptic Apocalypse, and the teaching in Matthew is particularly striking. In four to five paragraphs, respond to the following:How does the Eschatological Discourse/Synoptic Apocalypse help you to understand the parables? What is its relationship to those parables?What is the character of the judgment that occurs throughout these parables? It appears that Jesus is almost glorying in the judgment. Is he? How else might that judgment be understood?Bolster your argument by explaining how at least two parables or symbolic actions (“enacted parables”) should be interpreted as instances of the judgment you find in the second step.Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research.Click here for information on course rubrics.
