Erik Thoennes quoted by KTLA News on Bible's teaching about Judgment Day

May. 21, 2011 By Brenda Velasco

Thanks to the well-publicized prediction of a Northern California radio host, millions of people were waiting — some more seriously than others — to see if the world would end on May 21, 2011, at 6 p.m. The prediction, obviously, proved to be false.

For analysis of the situation, KTLA news turned to Erik Thoennes, an associate professor of biblical and theological studies at Biola University, to weigh in on the coming of Christ.

Watch the two videos below, in which Thoennes responds to the prediction.
