Me and Rob Skiba again! The guy is smart, sharp, he’s got a good sense of humor, and he’s a very fair host.
It’s so hard, trying not to fall into the trap of saying that every new podcast interview is “the best one yet.” That dilutes the phrase. It’s a dangerous slippery slope into click bait.
But I have to say this series of discussions truly are the best interviews I’ve had. We go deep into issues and because it’s a series, we cover a lot more ground than I have before.
This interview starts out on the poetry of Bible prophecy. Metaphors, hyperbole, symbols versus “literal.” What about double fulfillment? Are the Last Days in our future or were they in our past as the Last Days of the Old Covenant?
Listen here to the podcast online. You’ll be glad you did.
Part 1 is on the same page as Part 2 if you want to listen to it.
Part 3 is coming next week. We’ll talk about the book of Revelation specifically.
Hint: They are not in our future. But they were crucial to God’s plan in the first century destruction of Jerusalem and the temple.
I was just guest posted at the American Vision website with this article.

This is a FASCINATING discussion. One of my most interesting.
I was on Rob Skiba’s podcast talking about the End Times and the failure of modern Bible Prophecy pundits over and over and over again.
With such a track record of absolute and total failures, maybe it’s not because individuals are wrong in specific interpretations. Maybe its the entire system that is wrong.
Consider something radically different. Consider preterism…
What happens when two heretics discuss opposing views on the End Times? Find out in this first of a multi-part series, which will compare Brian Godawa’s Preterist views versus Rob Skiba’s Futurist views concerning what the Bible calls the “Last Days.” In this broadcast, Brian lays out the foundation for why he no longer believes in the Futurist position, as described in his latest series of books.

I was on this podcast. It was a great interview. One of my best yet.
We started talking about my new novel, “Tyrant: Rise of the Beast”, the first release in my new series “Chronicles of the Apocalypse.”
Then we talk about the new book before diving deep into a broader discussion about biblical prophecy and how to properly understand it in the modern age. Whether or not you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, if you have an interest in prophecy or are curious to know what the ancient authors meant by the “end times”, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss!

The apostle John writes the book of Revelation under the brutal regime of the evil emperor Nero. And the message of the secret apocalypse: The terrible judgment of God will shortly take place, and Jesus is coming quickly.
You will believe what happens next…
An epic tale of two cities: Rome and Jerusalem in the first century. A theological novel of spiritual warfare with angels and demons and the end of the old covenant age.

I was on Nick Peter’s Deeper Waters Apologetics Podcast. It was a great interview. Lively, informative and exhaustive on the topic of the book of Revelation and the “last days” of Jesus’ teaching. Boy, have modern prophecy pundits got it all wrong.
Listen to it here.
We talked about my journey of how I changed my mind in eschatology, as well as the book of Revelation and how it fits in the first century context. It will blow your mind. Nick is quite smart and knows how to ask penetrating questions that get right to the point.

This was a great interview I had with BDK on the Omega Frequency podcast.

Episode 94 features an in-depth look at some of the challenges the first generation of Christians faced while living under the rule of Nero. Under the Emperor Nero Rome prided it self on it’s multiculturalism. Early Christians faced many of the same cultural issues we face today. It might shock people to learn that under Rome, Christians had to stand against issues that we find ourselves wrestling with today. Because they would not compromise their faith, Nero branded them “the haters of the world”! Nero also blames the Great Fire of Rome on the Christians. This leads to the horrific persecution of the early church including the martyrdom of the apostles Peter and Paul. How did the earliest followers of Christ stand firm in their faith while living under the rule of a tyrant?
Of course, Christians in Muslim majority countries are already being persecuted in a similar manner. But it is rising in the U.S. too.
Okay, maybe not EVERYTHING. But certainly most things. Shocking, but true. The typical scenario of a rapture, Antichrist, 7 year Tribulation etc. all in our future simply doesn’t hold up to Scripture. Find out where you can begin to discover a more biblical way of reading the End Times through the context of the ancient Jewish mindset not our own modern one.
I was on Off the Grid Podcast talking about my new series, Chronicles of the Apocalypse. It was a good show. Very informative and helpful.
Check out the podcast here.
Here is what they write about the interview:
Brian tells us:
- Why he sees modern-day parallels between the times of Emperor Nero, who persecuted Christians, and events of today.
- How the theology behind “Chronicles of the Apocalypse” differs from the “Left Behind” books.
- Why Christians should not be afraid of reading biblical fantasy books – and how such books can encourage them.
Finally, Brian tells us how his interpretation of the book of Revelation differs from the more popular “Left Behind” interpretation.
We learned a lot about Scripture and the apocalypse during our discussion with Brian, and we know you will, too!
OFF THE GRID PODCAST
This was a great interview with a great host, Adam Sayne.
You are gonna love it. First off, he introduces the audience to the basic schools of eschatology and the end times.
Then at around 30:00 I come on and talk about the theological foundation of my new novel series, Chronicles of the Apocalypse.
I tell my own story of how I changed my view on the end times, I address Matthew 24 and the Last Days, the problem of hyperliteralism, as well as the ancient Hebrew background to understanding the imagery of the book of Revelation.
