This study of the book of Revelation uses the vantage point of comparing earlier prophetic writings to help understand and interpret John's message to the early Christians. In other words, in this course we look at this book from a 1st century Christian perspective. We want to let the Bible do the interpreting, rather than another man or religious organization. Doesn't mean we'll know everything about it, but at least we'll have more answers, lest confusion and a greater sense of security. That's what the 1st century Jesus followers got out of it.
