End-time views


The end-time view of Polycarpwriting before his martyrdom in 155 A.D. He was the bishop of Smyrna in the Roman province of Asia (now Turkey.)

I find no writings from Polycarp expressing any end-time viewpoint.

Robert Gundry notes, "It is inferred that Polycarp was premillenarian because Irenaeus, his pupil, was. . . ." But it is not so obvious Irenaeuswas premillennial.
