The Dragon and the Problem of Evil
Sunday February 10 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
With this lecture, we come to some of the most dramatic images in Revelation, relating to its portrayal of evil. We will consider four major images, beginning in this lecture with Satan as a great
dragon, hurled down from the sky to prowl the earth. In lectures to come, we’ll turn to Satan’s allies: a seven-headed beast from the sea, a cunning beast from the land, and Babylon the Harlot. A key to our reading about these forces of evil is the announcement of the heavenly chorus that the time has come “to destroy the destroyers of the earth.” If God is the Creator and his will for the world is life, then he must defeat those destructive forces that threaten life.
