    Exposition of Revelation (MP3 Series) by G. K. Beale

    The Book of Revelation: About the Future? Revelation 1:1-3


    [​IMG] "This monumental study of the book of Revelation will be especially helpful to scholars, pastors, students, and others seriously interested in interpreting the Apocalypse for the benefit of the church.

    "Too often Revelation is viewed as a book only about the future.

    "As G. K. Beale shows, however, Revelation is not merely a futurology but a book about how the church should live for the glory of God throughout the ages -- including our own. Approaching Revelation in terms of its own historical background and literary character, Beale argues convincingly that John’s use of Old Testament allusions -- and the way the Jewish exegetical tradition interpreted these same allusions -- provides the key for unlocking the meaning of Revelation’s many obscure metaphors.

    "In the course of Beale’s careful exegesis, which also untangles the logical flow of John’s thought as it develops from chapter to chapter, it becomes clear that Revelation’s challenging pictures are best understood not by apparent technological and contemporary parallels in the twentieth century but by Old Testament and Jewish parallels from the distant past.

    Yes, too often we see folks providing their application of Revelation to end times, and not often enough to our present day application. As Tony pointed out, it is Saturday, but Sunday is coming. We should all strive to apply this important book to our current lives, while avoiding as best we can speculation based on conjecture.

    Are you familiar with William Hendrixson's More Than Conquerors?

    "You're doing the right thing" (one of my sayings, true, or not).

    Many consider it a classic. I do.
