Understanding The Book Of Revelation

by Anderson Ruffin

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The Book of Revelation is one of the most fascinating books in the Bible. It is viewed as mysterious, indisputable, and inscrutable. Many scholars refuse to be challenged by its contents. The Book of Revelation is a book of symbols, apocalyptic prophecies many see as more challenging to interpret than any other book of the Bible. Many terms like four horsemen, locusts, dragons, and beasts have challenged writers and commentators since John wrote the book. The Book of Revelation is apocalyptic; however, not all of it is.
The Book of Revelation uses apocalyptic literature to include the use of highly symbolic figurative. Revelation incorporates fascinating sights, images, lightning, thunder, lampstands, creatures, angels, singing, claims, plagues, horses, trumpets, fanfares, bowls, vials, and chorus praising God and His Son Jesus. It explains why the righteous suffered, and God's judgment will be delayed. It offers the believers hope. Widespread attention is given to events displaying God's power against godlessness and evil. God will destroy a hellish world and create a new heaven and earth for the believers.
