We read Revelation together at church. The sermons were from Revelation. The Sunday class studied Revelation. We tried to make two points clear. First, Revelation is a revealing of Jesus Christ. Second, Revelation deals with the situations faced by the seven churches of Asia addressed in the book. I came across a great summary of Revelation from Brian Zahnd: “Revelation is a prophetic critique and scathing mockery of the Roman Empire showing in fantastic images how Jesus is Lord and Caesar is not.” In Revelation Jesus is revealed as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. My we never forget whatever our situation, our primary allegiance is to the Kingdom of the King of Kings.
