Revelation Discussion

Revelation Discussion

Much discussion in recent years has centered around the “end times.” Discussions and studies related to this topic are referred to as the study of “eschatology.” This week, you will read from the book of Revelation and be exposed to the apocalyptic genre in the New Testament. Our discussion this session will center around what the New Testament says about the “end times.” Along with your reading in Revelation and our textbook, review Jesus’ discussion of this topic in Matthew 24-25 and Paul’s statements in 1 Thessalonians 4-5 and 2 Thessalonians 2. Address the following in your entry to the discussion board: The book of Revelation has a lot of imagery and symbolism and can prove to be a challenging read. After completing all of your readings for this session, what questions do you still have regarding the imagery and symbolism you read about in the book of Revelation? What are some questions that remain unanswered for Christians related to the end times, even after reading the book of Revelation? Since we cannot know the exact time or date of the “end times,” what central message should we focus on and express to our family, friends, co-workers, and community concerning this “hot” topic in today’s society? Again, support your position with biblical and textbook references. This only needs to be a discussion form probably a half page
