Have you ever been a little hesitant when it comes to Revelation? Beloved Bible teacher Margaret Feinberg can relate. With its bloody dragons, flying creatures, and mark of the beast, Revelation can be intimidating.
What if, instead, through the book of Revelation, God is saving the best for last? Revelation is a survival guide for the suffering, a book of promises for the persecuted, a banner of hope for the beaten down. Not just for John in his time and in his age, but for every church in every age, including you and me.
Do we really think God gives us the Scriptures – this love letter, in which he reveals the lengths he’s gone to rescue us – only to scare the heebie-jeebies our of us in the final chapter? That’s not consistent with the character of God, or the redemptive work of God throughout history.
Join us for a six week trek through the pages of Revelation. “With each passing page, we must resist the temptation to overemphasize or become dogmatic about interpretations or debatable topics that draw us away from what, or rather who, this book is all about: this is a revelation of Jesus Christ.”
