Wednesday Bible Study on Revelation
On 05-09-2018, 10 a.m.
Wednesday Mornings beginning May 9 at 10 a.m. in Rm. 118: The Book of Revelation led by Associate Pastors Rev. Dr. Eddie Bromley and Associate Pastor, Lisa Harper
Does the book of Revelation predict the future? Does it only recount past events? Or, does it do something quite different from either? These are just some of the questions people have about this strange, New Testament book.
The primary reason people find the book of Revelation difficult to understand is because it uses symbols and metaphors from another time and place. We have our own symbols and metaphors; but we understand them. When someone speaks of an economic earthquake, we do not expect to see buildings falling down around us, or, when someone talks of a political landslide, we do not actually think that members of the losing party are buried under mounds of earth.
When we understand the metaphors and symbols used in Revelation, we can begin to understand the message of this important work. Come join us on May 9th at 10 a.m. for this new Bible study series!
