Here is a discussion of the Revelation of Jesus Christ to Saint John the Divine on the Isle of Patmos.
Revelation is also known as the Apocalypse of John. An Apocalypse is a class of Jewish and Christian
writing that reveals ultimate divine purpose – classic Old Testament examples are the books of Daniel
and Zechariah which provide a necessary foundation for understanding the New Testament Book of
There are several schools of thought about how John’s Apocalypse should be interpreted and these
include the Preterist, the Historicist, the Futurist and the Poetic Views. These views respectively see
Revelation as applying to events in the time of early Christianity, or as a preview of history from the
first to the second coming of Christ, or as essentially about to future events yet to come, or as being
a poetic picture of the struggle between good and evil. Evangelicals and Pentecostals tend to subscribe
to the Futurist View.
The presentation in these two DVD Books is none of the above but is based on the conviction the Bible
is its own interpreter and therefore it interprets the Revelation in the light of the Old Testament Prophets
Daniel and Zechariah as well as in the light of symbols that Jesus used in teaching the disciples about
the Kingdom of God as recorded in the New Testament.
This entire presentation consists in two DVD Books containing twelve discs each for a total of about
twelve hours viewing. The teaching is clear and easily followed and makes the Book of Revelation
understandable. This DVD set will be a valuable addition to any library and would make an excellent gift
to any Christian, Bible student, or inquirer into Christian truth and light.
