Bible Study Topic:  Revelation

Studying the New Testament’s final book, Revelation, might remind one of Dorothy’s famous line in The Wizard of Oz, “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore!”  A surface reading reveals strange imagery and veiled language, a style so distinct from the New Testament’s other books, and possibly why some have avoided its deeper exploration.

Yet this is why Revelation is so vital to study and why it will be the subject of our four-day Bible Study deep dive in October, 2017, at the beautiful Cedars Camps in Missouri. 

We will look at the book’s historical context, why it was written, when and by whom and what the apocalyptic style of writing includes.  By understanding the book’s structure, what specifically the Holy Spirit speaks to the seven churches, how they represent states of thought, what some of the symbols such as seals, trumpets and bowls, etc. might represent, we begin to dig below its surface to find its many spiritual gems.

While Revelation is filled with prophesy, it is a book written to the people of God to both resist and endure during tremendously challenging times.  We have only to look at the persecutions of Christians in much of the world to realize its continuing relevance and how, regardless of where one lives, our faith can be deeply tested today.  Revelation speaks to these very contemporary challenges and we’ll learn how to pull its lessons forward to our own lives and time. 

The class will be limited in size and we encourage those interested to sign up soon.  Participants will receive a workbook on arrival with study questions and a place to organize notes.  A first assignment will be emailed to participants two weeks prior to the session.
