I was recently invited by Neil Boron to come on his radio show to talk about the so-called “mark of the beast.” We talked about a range of things related to that topic–including the historical context of Revelation, as well as the various rumors floating around that the mark has something to do with Covid-19 and the vaccine. Neil was a terrific host, and I enjoyed the conversation very much. Our discussion was posted to YouTube, so if you get a chance, check it out (video below). Since there is a ton of unfounded fear going around about the topic, I pray what I have to say helps to allay all the suspicion and anxiety.
There is so much to say about this topic (and about eschatology in general), so we were not able to dive into every nook and cranny of the subject. However, I’m currently writing a book on eschatology, which will explore the topic more in-depth. (By the way, I have a cool announcement about my book… to be shared shortly – stay tuned!). In the meantime, check out the conversation below, as well as several articles I have written on the mark and the imperial cult.
