The End of the World as We Know It:

An Expansion Deck for The Apocalypse


Background

Back in 2016 we toyed with the idea of an apocalypse themed deck. Then the Presidential election happened and we shifted focus, creating The Trump Cards: "Fake News" from the Bible Expansion Deck [sold out].

Recently, we’ve received some email and online interest in this topic again. While we have have enough for a complete deck, we decided to open it up.

This time we are crowd-sourceing content to make an expanded expansion deck.

More cards with the content you want.


What We Mean by “Apocalyptic”

The words “apocalyptic” and “apocalypse” come from a Greek root meaning “to uncover” or “to reveal.” As such apocalyptic writing

is a record of divine disclosures made known through the agency of angels, dreams, and visions. These may take different forms: an otherworldly journey in which the “secrets” of the cosmos are made known… or a survey of history often leading to an eschatological crisis in which the cosmic powers of evil are destroyed, the cosmos is restored, and Israel (or “the righteous”) is redeemed.

[The Oxford Companion to the Bible] {For more information/examples, click.}

we are looking for Bible passages that deal with the battle behind the scenes spirituality.

Deck Parameters


All of our decks are bibilically based. This deck is no different, however we are expanding these parameters.

Deck content can come from the apocalyptic literature in:

  • The Hebrew Bible/Old Testament (Genesis to 2 Chronicles/Malachi) [Bonus points for those who know why we wrote it this way],

  • The New Testament (Matthew to Revelation),

    AND

  • The Deuterocanonical books, as recognized by the Catholic Church and Orthodox Church, (i.e. Tobit, Judith, the Maccabees, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, etc)


Miscellaneous

  • The size of the deck will be determined by the number and quality of ideas we get.

  • We hope to have this deck ready in time for the 2020 election . . . end of the wor… Christmas season. The 2020 Christmas season.

  • Check back here for more details as they become available.
