Public Lecture Announcement

Free public lecture: When turning to the book of Revelation from the rest of the New Testament, one feels as though they are entering a foreign country. Instead of narratives and letters containing plain statements of fact and imperatives, one comes to a book full of angels, trumpets, and earthquakes; of beasts, dragons, and bottomless pits. The interpretive problems are complex, but a basic grasp of genre and symbolism will drastically enhance and clarify one’s reading of the text within the first century context of the ancient Roman Empire.
