Adult Forum - Sundays at 9:15 AM
Join us in Backus House us at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, January 20th, as we continue a 13-week study of the Book of Revelation. Probably no other book of the Bible is more misunderstood than Revelation, the final book of the New Testament. According to one scholar, many readers come to Revelation looking for a “prediction” and what the writer delivers is a symbol laden vision of a church that perseveres through struggle; we look for signs of the end and, instead, Revelation gives us a song for the ages.
In this class, we will seek to understand the text (meaning, we will answer the question of what the text meant for those who read it or heard it); judge the text (meaning, what does it mean for us?); and activate the text (explore what it means to live as the church envisioned by the writer of Revelation). See you there!
