Revelation Bible Study

Many Christians get confused about this last book of the Bible. It is understandable. There are weird images of monsters rising from the land and the sea. A jumble of numbers: sevens, twelves, 144,000, and let's not forget 666. Then there is the glowing image of a dude with a sword coming out of his mouth reminding us of a magician act from a Vegas show. How should 21st century believers understand this 1st century text? Does this text have something to say to our lives amidst the strange imagery? If you have ever been curious about Revelation, if you have ever opened the book, tried to read it, and then shut it out of confusion or fear then this adult Bible study is for you. This Sunday morning class isn't a verse by verse teaching on Revelation; rather it is all about helping you to understand how to interpret the imagery, so that you can be better equipped to read this book on your own and in small groups with others. It also will help you to navigate through the confusion of interpretations so that when this text comes up in conversation with other believers or non-believers you can feel a bit more confident in speaking about what Revelation is and what it is not. We hope you will join us on Sunday mornings for this study.
