Understanding the Bible 44: The Apocalypse – Starring Christopher Walken, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

No biblical book inspires a broader spectrum of interpretation than the book of Revelation. Filled with symbols that range from multi-headed dragon to streets of gold, from doomsday battles and the mark of the beast to the New Jerusalem, the Apocalypse (literally the “revealing”) is meant to guide the church in the last act of the biblical drama – the on-going ministry of the church it awaits Jesus’s return and the consummation of the Kingdom of God.

In this first of eight episodes examining the book of Revelation, our own Ian Farrell provides and introduction to the book by examining the historical events that preceded its composition as well as a look at what Revelation is not. If you’ve ever wondered what Cats, Rutger Hauer, monster trucks and ComiCon have in common…this is the episode for you!
