Show Notes

You may wonder, Why the book of Revelation?

I admit, it is the most confusing and frustrating book in the Bible
- it’s not an easy read – some images are very strange
• they seem fairytale or mythical, except but even weirder 
◦ for instance, we find, not just a beast with ten horns,
◦ but it has seven heads (?) and ten crowns on its horns
• there’s not another book in Bible exactly like this
- but it is also one of the most fascinating books in the Bible
• Revelation can work in us in ways like no other book
• if it disturbs us, it also calms us; if it frightens also reassures; if it is structured, it is also free;
and if its meaning is hidden, its overall effect is Revelation
