We have at least three different ways we can understand the Book of Revelation: We can read it like a Roman would, or like a first-century Jew might, or we can read it like the early first-century followers of Jesus Christ DID read it. What did the early church know about the Book of Revelation that many people of today don’t?
This Tuesday Night Bible Study class, “the Gospel of the Revelation according to St. John the Divine,” peals away all the curious, preconceived, mysterious notions we have collected about it and makes it come alive in a way that renews and strengthens our faith.
It is a story of unimaginable tragedy and loss and, at the same time, a story of incredible delight and joy. But maybe NOT in the way you think.
You will need your Bible from the first session on Tuesday night, February 6th and for each of 8 weeks through the end of March. The first session on February 6th is absolutely required if you plan to be a part of this study. Otherwise, the remaining classes probably won’t make sense.
We meet in the William Stokes Friendship Hall on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30 pm. Come early and bring your bag dinner to eat with others who gather early.
Tuesday Night Bible Study takes a break for January in preparation for this study.
