Revelation is considered by many modern readers as mysterious at best, and confusing at worst. Reading the book is like entering into a maze. However,
- do you know that the message of Revelation was simple but the encryption of the message was absolutely brilliant for the first audience?
- do you know that Revelation is actually a ‘sequel’?
- do you know that the author ‘planted’ a clever and almost unnoticeable digression, causing huge confusion for modern readers?
And do you know
- that all the mysterious symbols in Revelation are explained in the same book?
During the winter, we spent time exploring the Book of Daniel during our worship services to give us a good introduction to this study of the Book of Revelation. This study is open to all so share with friends in other churches – zoom doesn’t require any travelling except between rooms in your own house.
Let’s come and join Sunny on this adventurous journey of discovery!
Via Zoom Over three nights
30 November, 7 December, 14 December: 7.30pm – 9.30pm
