The End: Reading Revelation Theologically

Sunday, March 5, 2017
The First Sunday In Lent
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 last chapter of the book, John’s series of visions come to an end. The voice of Jesus comes through clearly, however, assuring the listeners that the one who comes to save is God himself: the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. All are welcome and previous attendance is not required.
