Ante-Nicene Chiliasm: The Sexta/Septa-Millennial Tradition
In this video I survey an ancient Jewish concept adopted by the early Christian in which, it was believed, that from the creation six thousand years of human rebellion and wickedness would be followed by a thousand year Messianic era. The early Christians utilized this concept to explain why the Great Tribulation and return of the Lord had not yet occurred.
