Few Biblical books are as intriguing and mysterious as the Book of Revelation, the last work in the New Testament. Its often bizarre imagery can be off-putting to many, and yet it stands as one of the finest examples of an ancient literary art form.
This introductory seminar will delve into the history of the composition of revelation, its literary style, and how it uses it to convey its powerful message of hope. This seminar then looks at ways in which we can responsibly interpret Revelation for today that doesn’t send people scurrying into bunkers with canned food!
