The End: Reading Revelation Theologically

Sunday, February 26, 2017
The Eighth 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 penultimate chapter of the Apocalypse, John sees revealed ‚Äúthe holy city, the new Jerusalem.‚Äù These beautiful visions represents God’s promises to the faithful: a day to come in which there is ‚Äúno more death, neither sorrow, nor crying.‚Äù After the destructions depicted in the earlier parts of the book, the loving faithfulness of God is affirmed in these descriptions of everlasting peace. All are welcome and previous attendance is not required.
