For many of us, we grew up thinking that Revelation was a book that: proved Jesus was a badass after all (and not merely that hippie in the Sermon on the Mount), legitimated religiously motivated violence, placed our hope in a future rapture, and kept us in check from sin so we wouldn’t get left behind. O, how wrong I was.
Revelation is a book of hope.
Revelation is a book of sacrifice.
Revelation is a book of gardens and cities.
Revelation is a book that exposes violence.
Revelation is a book that calls out empires.
Revelation is a book that summons us into a better way of being human.
Revelation is a book that features, front and center, a slaughtered lamb.
These are some of the themes we’ve touched on in our Revelation series at Pangea Communities (the new church plant that I help lead). I hope you will catch up on our series and take advantage of these 10 podcasts on the book of Revelation and Empire.
