In the above delivery of these materials (in 2012), Doctor Waldron
at times compressed & even eliminated certain sections because
of time contraints. The messages above that have either "a" or "b"
in the number are from other renditions of the course. They are to
help enlarge upon / fill-in these compressed / eliminated sections.
The audio may not sound the same because they are coming from
Note: While the backbone of this course has remained the same over the years, the lectures on this page were delvered relatively recently, and thus reflect Dr. Waldron's most mature thinking on this topic. They also have the best audio quality. If the handful of Supplimental Messages are heard (see the black table above), the listener should have a fairly decent Biblical introduction to this topic.
It may be of interest to some however — after having heard these — to check out the older versions of the course, since (for example) some sections that are covered in three message here, are covered in five messages there. Also, in many of the lectures Dr. Waldron opens up the class for “Q & A” times (which are of course unique to the particular group of students present) which could prove helpful in answering specific questions that were not asked by the 2012 class. The legacy messages also include a series called “Peters Eschatology,” in which the material that is presented briefly above (No. 6) is expanded out to five full conference messages.
Additional reading materials mentioned during this series include: The End Times Made Simple, MORE End Times Made Simple, A Friendly Response to MacArthur's Millennium Manifesto (all by Dr. Waldron), The Interadventual Period and the Advent: Matthew 24 and 25 (from The Collected Writings of John Murray: Vol 2), Events to Precede The Return of Our Lord (by B. W. Newton), and The Genesis and Development of Dispensationalism in Nineteenth-Century England (by Mark Sarver)
