Guest: The V. Rev. Fr Thomas Hopko, Dean Emeritus of St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, author of numerous articles and books, and podcaster on Ancient Faith Radio, will help us understand how Orthodox Holy Tradition interprets and applies the prophetic texts of Scripture in light of the many modern-day "end times" interpretations, including the rapture (pre-Tribulation), the antichrist (the beast) coming into power and signing a covenant with Israel for seven years, the thousand-year reign of Christ (millenialism), and so on.
