Christian Model of Foresight

Christian Model of Foresight

An Ideological and Socio-Rhetorical Analysis of Revelation 2:1-7

How should Christian communities approach their future horizon? This paper will argue from John’s letter to the church of Ephesus in Revelation 2:1-7, that his implicit model of foresight combines both futurum and adventus, or eschatology and futurology. John’s prophetic model informs a Christian model of foresight for today’s Christian organizations. The application of futurology in today’s model will differ greatly from John’s model due to a broader availability of information sources.
