Our Good Book Club Journey

For the next few weeks, The Good Book Club will take up Revelation, which may be one of the most challenging books of the Bible to understand. While composed in the style of a pastoral letter, Revelation also shares stylistic aspects with the prophetic books of the Old Testament by relying on deeply symbolic language. As a prophet, the book’s author (John) uses symbolism and imagery to emphasize his message: beware of the power and sway of the empire. John’s prophetic message asks us to recognize that the goals of the empire and the goals of God are often not the same despite the claims of the empire to the contrary. John encourages his readers to turn away from the destructive powers of the empire and seek God’s power of healing and justice.
