Revelation - The Adventist Theological Academy (0.2 CEU)

Course Summary

Join Dr. Félix H. Cortez and Ranko Stefanovic as they explore the Revelations of John.

What do I need to know?

The book is called Revelation because it reveals Jesus and also because it reveals the future. Also known as the Apocalypse, the book contains images and symbols that are difficult to understand. Some of them refer to catastrophes and judgment, but others to victory and salvation. Why was the book written in this genre? Why does it seem to cover its message under images and symbols if its purpose is to reveal? What is the ultimate purpose and message of Revelation? What is the key that will help us unlock its treasures? How is Revelation relevant for our daily lives? Explore these and other questions in this course.
