Reading Revelation Then and Now
Thank you! I don't know what else to say but that you people do a wonderful job. No mere sentiment here. In all my contacts with JC Studies over the years one thing stands out: You guys have a passion to serve
It is eye opening that Dr. Ron said the people this was originally written to would have completely understood it, I mean we don’t, so it makes you wonder where we went wrong.
I have been looking for something like this on the book of Revelation for years, because I've never understood it and always avoided reading it. Now I see it from a new perspective. Thank you for making material available online
You probably noticed that people have one of two reactions or approaches to the book of Revelation. They either don't know what to do with it and so they run from it as fast as they can, or they run to the safety of other places in scripture that seem more natural or easy to interpret. We want to challenge you to come with a fresh set of eyes and explore the context of the 1st century. You will be surprised... The original audience fully understood what John was communicating to them!

Any one taking this course, hungering for understanding, clarity and hope, will surely have that goal met. The professor’s presentation was so clear and paced optimally, that caused you to be excited to know and process more. Although having received disjointed bits and pieces through past readings, this course took you by the hand, so to speak, and walked you through the chapters with simplicity. I would love to go through it again to be built up in knowledge of my hope and in knowledge of my God and His Christ— the Blessed Messiah.Read Less
