Description

The Book of Revelation is a work of profound theology.

But its literary form makes it impenetrable to many modern readers and open to all kinds of misinterpretations.

Richard Bauckham explains how the book's imagery conveyed meaning in its original context and how the book's theology is inseparable from its literary structure and composition.

Revelation is seen to offer not an esoteric and encoded forecast of historical events but rather a theocentric vision of the coming of God's universal kingdom, contextualised in the late first-century world dominated by Roman power and ideology.

It calls on Christians to confront the political idolatries of the time and to participate in God's purpose of gathering all the nations into his kingdom.

Once Revelation is properly grounded in its original context it is seen to transcend that context and speak to the contemporary church.

This study concludes by highlighting Revelation's continuing relevance for today.
