The Revelation of Saint John the Divine is one of the most peculiar and controversial books of the Bible. Also called by its anglicized Greek name, the Apocalypse, the book’s imagery, language, and claims about heaven, earth, and the relationship between them, have captivated Christians for millennia. This class will look closely at the book, guided by several recent Anglican commentaries.

The class continues this week as the middle section of Revelation concludes in the eighteenth chapter. There, John witnesses the destruction of Babylon. The fall of that great city is not the end of the story, however. With the powers and principalities destroyed, the faithful prepare to receive the “marriage supper of the Lamb.” All are welcome and previous attendance is not required.
