Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor
Key Text: Revelation 1:1-3
Description: The book of Revelation is difficult to understand. Right? It’s cryptic and strange. Not so for the its first readers.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to the opening verses of the book of Revelation, as our study of this oft misunderstood last book of the Bible gets underway, and explains that to the first readers some 2000 years ago, this book was essentially what we would recognize today as a “New York Times Best Seller.”
How we approach this book matters greatly. And just as we would immediately understand that “Once upon a time…” begins a fairy tale, the first readers of Revelation immediately understood that they were reading apocalyptic literature… and in order for us to understand it, we must too.
