NT672 An Application Study in the Book of Revelation (2 credits)
April 23-27, 2018; 8:00am to 12:00pm
Instructor: Dr. David Wold
This course will help students discover God’s prophetic plans for the future based on the book of Revelation, and learn how to live for those days. Using John MacArthur’s The MacArthur New Testament Commentary on Revelation, this module aims to unveil Jesus Christ in glory. The book of Revelation was written by the apostle John as his letter to the churches in Asia Minor who were feeling the overwhelming effects of persecution from all sides. Revelation was a reminder to them that God saw their hardships, cared about them, and would reward them for their faithfulness.
Through the use of vivid imagery, John writes Revelation to reveal the end of human history, the return of Christ, and the establishment of a new heaven and a new earth. John’s message of hope in Revelation assures Christians that God is in sovereign control of all past, present, and future events. He encourages believers to trust that Jesus Christ will judge the lost and will rule in ultimate victory over all human and demonic opposition.
