Over the centuries since it was written the Book of Revelation has suffered much at the hands of many experts. And yet the work remains an enigma to most modern readers, usually marginalised in our discussion of theology, the Gospel, or of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. This course reclaims the powerful message of the Book of Revelation for today.

nnn

Special attention will be paid to Revelation as a work of early Christian literature deeply influenced by the prophetic witness of the Old Testament, by events and attitudes of the first century world, and by the early Christians' experience of Jesus himself. Students who take the course will be introduced to the insights offered by current scholarly engagement with the Apocalypse, and will be given the opportunity to reflect together on the enduring significance of this book for society today.
