Revelation: Pt. 1 – Overview
The book of Revelation is full of symbols, and that means that it’s been interpreted in a lot of different ways over the years.

Revelation: Pt. 4 – Themes

Revelation: Pt. 5 – Revelation and Me
Revelation is a book about warfare. But not warfare of the literal kind. In Revelation, the battle is mental. It’s a battle that any follower of Jesus has to confront and wage within him or herself. And that’s what makes this book not just relevant to your life, but one of the most relevant books of the Bible.
