Origins of the Book of Revelation
Sunday January 13 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In the last two lectures, we’ve considered the background of Revelation. We began with the Hebrew prophets and traced the themes of evil and hope through their writings into the Jewish apocalyptic tradition. We then considered the way in which the apocalyptic worldview, with its strong sense of conflicting powers, was taken up and transformed in early Christian thought. In this lecture, we begin our study of the book of Revelation itself, exploring its origins and the character of its author, John.
