“Behold, I Am Coming Soon” - A Sermon Series on the Apocalypse
The Revelation to John, also known as the Apocalypse, is one of the most misunderstood works in the entire canon of Scripture. In recent times it’s often been viewed as a breeding ground for fundamentalism, end-time fanaticism, and sectarian retreat from or hatred of the world. This suspicion of Revelation would have surprised our Christian ancestors. The book has nurtured the Christian imagination across the ages, from Dante’s Divine Comedy and Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress to Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Most of all, of course, Revelation has been seen as an affirmation of the lordship of Jesus Christ in a world where evil too often seems firmly in control.
Join us on Thursday mornings this term as Wycliffe College faculty members grapple with some of the most striking and challenging passages in Revelation. “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of the prophecy, and blessed are those who hear…” (Rev. 1:3).
