Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come *Women's Study Group

The Apocalypse, or Revelation to John, the last book of the Bible, is one of the most difficult to understand because it abounds in unfamiliar and extravagant symbolism, which at best appears unusual to the modern reader. Symbolic language, however, is one of the chief characteristics of apocalyptic literature, of which this book is an outstanding example. Composed as resistance literature to address a crisis, the Book of Revelation cannot be adequately understood except against the historical background that occasioned its writing.
