The end that is a BEGINNING, the Revelation and the book of John
As you have read through the Bible from first to last, it’s all been about Jesus.
He created a perfect world for humanity to enjoy and to walk with Him. When they disobeyed, He promised a Redeemer.
The entire Old Testament talks about this future Redeemer, the importance of salvation by faith, and how the sacrificial system was a picture of what was coming. The prophets continually reminded the people that the Redeemer, the Messiah was coming.
And the New Testament records the life, death, and resurrection of the Messiah, Jesus and the creation of the church He left to represent Him.
And so as we end the reading of the Bible, we will focus on Jesus, reminding ourselves that the book of Revelation is not a puzzle to be solved but as the first words in the book remind us, it is a REVELATION of Jesus Christ.
In this lesson, after introductory comments on Revelation, we’ll look more closely at a revelation of Jesus, we’ll take an in-depth look at the “I Ams” of Jesus in the book of John.
We’ll end with a reminder that though this is the end of our reading in the Bible, it is only the beginning of “the great story, which has no end and in which every chapter is better than the one before (C.S. Lewis).”
