0.5 End Times and The Return of Christ: Table of Contents

  1. 1. TABLE OF CONTENTS What follows is a hyperlinked table of contents to a 35 set presentation series focused on biblical prophecy regarding the return of Jesus Christ. The 35 sets settle into three groups: OT, NT/epistles and John’s Revelation. I compose in Keynote 5 and must therefore upload to SlideShare in PDF, since SlideShare does not handle Keynote submissions easily.
  2. 2. THE RETURN OF THE (REAL) KING Most of the slide sets to which this table of contents provides you access were originally used in an adult Sunday School series. I write without benefit of formal theological training, which, as you may well imagine, represents a mixed blessing. By way of blessing, anticipate a uniformly unique perspective on God’s Word as it pertains to the Return of the (real) King.
  3. 3. SlideShare’s hyperlinks won’t work until Slide #4–something to do with spam prevention, so . . . this is a filler designed to accommodate that necessity. I’m well aware of how irrepressibly cute I appear. I exercise the power of kitty cuteness.
