Course Description:
"The Day of the LORD": Most prophets in the Tanakh (Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings) warn of this Day, and the New Covenant Scriptures continue the focus. Is it something to look forward to or to dread, and why? When does this day begin and when does it end? Is there only one? Can this day be postponed, advanced, or avoided? We will look with care at every Biblical passage where it is mentioned to answer these and other questions.
