In our quest to give you empowering tools that help connect the Testaments consider our newest video course. Heroes, Dragons, and Empires: Reading Revelation Then and Now is a breathtaking journey through the last book of the Bible. You'd be right to ask us, why St. John's Apocalypse for a ministry questing to explain how the Jewishness of Jesus impacts being his disciples in the twenty-first century?
When emptied of its historical context, St. John’s Apocalypse becomes a vacant vessel that many are quick to fill with all manner of nonsense. I’m mindful of this quote from the venerable G.K. Chesterton, “Though St. John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creature so wild as one of his own commentators.” If, as the book reminds us, we are to be King Jesus’ faithful witnesses, then God deserves better; the text deserves better; the Church deserves better; our neighbors deserve better.
