Comfort for a Church in Times of Crisis: The Book of Revelation

Join Father Peter on Thursdays @ 4:00 p.m. during the months of August through October for a study and discussion of The Book of Revelation.

Revelation is one of the more misunderstood and perhaps misused books in the Bible. It was written to the Church by St. John at the end of the first century to the Church as it underwent deep persecution and death throughout the Roman Empire. When interpreted faithfully to the Church today it speaks again to a Church in crisis on many fronts and still can speak comfort to the believer.

In this study we will explore the apocalyptic idioms of Revelation and the influence of Old Testament prophecy on Revelation thus reading the timeless call to stand faithful to God as witnesses to God’s sovereignty and salvation. Though moments on the journey to God are fearsome, Revelation demonstrates how God is always in control and full of steadfast faithfulness and love for those of us who have chosen to live our lives for God.
