What Does That Wild and Colorful Book of Revelation Mean?
Let’s talk about what is perhaps the wildest, weirdest, most colorful book of the Bible: Revelation. It has been the subject of great debate and controversy in the Church, and has provided a lot of material for film makers and popular novelists to use to roll out the latest end times movie or the latest speculative “Left Behind” type books.
But, what does Revelation really mean? What can it teach us?
Now’s your chance to understand this mysterious and baffling book of the Bible with Concordia Popular Commentary: Revelation. Follow the link to the book and you can download a sample of the book.
Revelation can bring to mind terrible visions of war, disaster, persecution, and global destruction. It challenges the reader with symbols and hidden meanings. Yet the golden thread that runs through Revelation is Christ with His Church in worship on earth and in heaven. This commentary explores and explains the final testimony of the ascended Lord before His return in judgment.
This book draws its content from the best-selling book Revelation-Concordia Commentary series. This new lay-friendly edition includes all of the original translation and commentary but excluds technical notes, original biblical languages, and terminology required of an academic edition.
