XX An Introduction to Revelation

349 views

Published on

Here I set forth my intentions for teaching an adult Sunday School class the Book of Revelation. I have an 'odd' approach: I prefer to start with the final two chapters and work a series of six threads back into the earlier chapters. That way, I know the six elements that end up accounted for and, happily, discover that The Revelation describes the steps along which these six elements reach their eternal destinies.

    12. 12. THE END MAKES NARRATIVE SENSE-ALL BY ITSELF BECAUSE: The last few chapters (19-22) Introduction Letters to the Seven and distinct scenes which Present clear Churches Contain basic and limited details that The Story of the Tribulation Follow one another in story order and Rev Christ’s Return we know 19 Spotlight Six Main Tribulation actors so that the important players in advance when we read chapters 5-13! The Millennium We know WHO’s important Greatknow HOW they end up We White Throne Judgment We know The Eternal City WHAT to get curious about Final Message We know WHERE the earlier tribulation events end up as they present themselves in 5-13. Rev 22
    13. 13. WHO ARE THE TRIBULATION SIX? The Tribulation Saints The AntiChrist and his False Prophet Satan himself Israel The Nations Creation (Earth and Heavens)
    14. 14. MY PLAN First, learn how God’s plan ends, from the return of Christ to the Eternal State Then you’ll know how each of the Tribulation Six ends up when we meet them in chaps. 5-13 Finally, focus on the Tribulational backstory for each of the Six individual Tribulation ‘players’ in turn in Chapters 5-13 Understand what each one experienced in the Tribulation section of Revelation. Let our understanding of the Tribulation form around these actors’ experiences.
