The Coronavirus and End Times

The Coronavirus and End Times August 14, 2021

Sometimes various elements of real life align in unexpected ways. In the Spring semester of 2020 I was team-teaching a colloquium called “Apocalypse” for the third time. Just about exactly half way through the semester, a real-life apocalypse–Covid-19–forced our campus, along with virtually everything else in this country to go into quarantine. All of the remaining classes for the last weeks of the semester were taught remotely.

Not surprisingly, the essay that I posted less than a week after classes went remote in March 2020 was my most-read blog post of 2020. It also comes in a #3 on the all-time list for the nine years of this blog’s existence. Enjoy “The Coronavirus, the Apocalypse, and the Book of Revelation”!
