Boston University Center for Millennial Studies and School of Theology to Co-Sponsor Apocalyptic Symposium

(Boston, Mass) — The Boston University Center for Millennial Studies and School of Theology, and the Boston Theological Institute are co-sponsoring a two-day symposium, “Millennial Texts and Apocalyptic Contexts: Implications for Congregational Life,” on November 9 and 10 at the Andover Newton Theological School. The planned discussion will address how millennial texts are reflected in religious practice and historical events, and be the first in a series of similar events.

The symposium will bring together an international group of scholars to discuss how certain millennial texts have been interpreted by Jewish, Christian, and Islamic communities. Discussion will focus on Daniel 9:24-27 because of its central role in some important distinctions regarding Christian and Jewish thought, as well as pre-millennial, a-millennial, and post-millennial beliefs.

This event is open to the public. Registration is $25 for the general public and $10 for students, and includes dinner on Sunday and continental breakfast and lunch on Monday. For more information or to register for the conference, please visit www.bostontheological.org or call (617) 527-4880. Registration is also available at the door.
