The Book of Revelation

Everyone is welcome to these sessions, which will be held on the fourth Sundays of January, February and March, 2012. The Bible study will begin at 10:30 a.m. The three sessions will explore the Book of Revelation through some of these questions:

Who wrote Revelation, and why? What is apocalypse, and how is it different from prophecy, history or poetry? How have Christians thought about Revelation through the centuries? How have Christians responded to dates for the rapture or second coming that failed to come true? How did the rapture and the Anti-Christ become associated with Revelation? And most important of all, what is the good news that Revelation has for Christians today?


Save these dates!
