E30: The Book of Revelation and Jewish Apocalypticism

Download this episode

In this episode we give an overview of the major themes and features found in the book of Revelation. The book is frequently associated with bizarre imagery, and is often seen as difficult to understand. Yet, when compared with the imagery and features common to second temple Jewish apocalyptic texts, the language and message of the book of Revelation become simple and clear – eschatological trauma and tribulation before eschatological glory.
