The End: Reading Revelation Theologically

Sunday, January 29, 2017
The Fourth Sunday After The Epiphany
10:00 am - 10:45 am

 

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.

In the sixteenth chapter of the Apocalypse, the images John sees continue to darken as the Prince of Peace overcomes the powers and principalities of the world. The class meets on the fifth floor and previous attendance is not required.
