(Josh) In the Bible, Jesus tells his disciples the following about the end of the world: “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angles in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father. (Matthew 24:36). Despite this, William Miller, a popular minister in New York, preached that he had calculated the precise day on which the world would come to an end. He was wrong. Twice. In this episode, Josh explores William Miller’s conversion to evangelical Christianity, his calculations about the end of the world, and the fallout from his incorrect predictions.
