The Book of Revelation
June 10-12, 2016 Bible
This June intensive course for current Luther Seminary students explores Revelation’s vivid portrayal of God’s conflict with evil, its witness to the Lamb and its vision of new creation. Now it is open to pastors and lay leaders as continuing education. Attention is given to the controversies surrounding the interpretation of the book, as well as its profound impact of Christian worship, art and music. Students will become familiar with perspectives of the book, which range from scholarly to the sensationalistic types that appear on the Internet and in popular literature. The course considers all major passages in Revelation and explores ways of teaching Revelation in contemporary contexts.
