Revelation Bible Study

To parody a movie line, the book of Revelation scares away many readers due to its “lions, dragons, and beasts.” Confusion is wrought by scrolls, trumpets, and bowls. Fear swells with the ideas of being “left behind”, and “getting the mark of the beast,” and final battles.
 
However, as we adjust our expectations of the book of Revelation, and read it in a more appropriate and meaningful way, we find that Revelation is an imminently enjoyable letter of comfort to Christians living in a hostile world — making it imminently practical for our time.
 
You are invited to join in a Bible study environment on the book of Revelation which will take place on Tuesday evenings from September 12 through December 12 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
