This workshop on the book of Revelation was presented in Boston, Massachusetts in September 1992. The book of Revelation is the most unusual book in the New Testament but not unique as a whole as Old Testament prophets used very similar symbolic language. Therefore, what seems to be mysterious and even forboding to the modern reader was quite familiar to Christians in the first century, especially to those of a Jewish background.
Revelation was written against a backdrop of serious persecution in the early period of Christianity With such a background of historic persecution it is obvious that Revelation was designed to help Christians face the onslaught of specific problems associated with persecution.
The series has eight messages and a pdf booklet with outlines is also included.
