St. James’ Sunday Bible Study Lectures
February 3, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
Seven Trumpets, Temple, and Celebration
Sunday February 3 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In this lecture, we look at the visions of the seven trumpets, in chapters 8–11 of Revelation, from two contrasting perspectives. First, we’ll explore how people read these passages from a futuristic perspective, as if Revelation were a series of predictions about future events. Then, we’ll see how this same section looks if we read it from a modern literary perspective, with the idea that Revelation is a piece of literature that uses vivid picture language to convey something about God’s way of dealing with the world.
