SCOT MCKNIGHT – Rethinking Revelation (podcast)

SCOT MCKNIGHT – Rethinking Revelation (podcast) May 23, 2024

Co-author of Revelation for the Rest of Us.

There was a time, back in the 70s and early 80s, when the study of Revelation, with speculations about the end times and being “left behind,” was in vogue.

But today, most Christians stay away from Revelation. Preachers either ignore it or choose to teach from the safer passages, like chapters 2 through 4, or about the New Heavens and New Earth in the final two chapters. The reason is that so many of us have become frustrated by how people have portrayed it, enamored with the violence, speculation, and false predictions.

Our guest on this episode is Scot McKnight, who, along with Cody Matchett, has written the book Revelation for the Rest of Us: A Prophetic Call to Follow Jesus as a Dissident Disciple (Zondervan, 2023). They say that all the future foretelling that speculative dispensationalists have been doing over the past century has distracted us from the real message of Revelation.
