Today in my Bible class the topic was apocalyptic literature – Daniel and Revelation. The student who presented included a segment of the above video on the number of the beast, and I thought it was worth sharing with a wider audience.

I now have my lecture on this topic online, so that we can use class time to go into more detail.
