It’s without question the most debated, most misunderstood, most terrifying book in the Bible. So much so, it almost didn’t even make it in.

With its bizarre symbolism, violent conflicts, and epic scale, it’s no wonder Revelation has captured both the Christian and cultural imagination. Add to that our fascination with wanting to know the future, and you have a formula for an instant bestseller.

But do we truly understand what St. John’s vision is really all about? Have we imposed our own contemporary context on an ancient type of literature to the extent that we’re misreading the story?

This Sunday at New Wineskins, we’ll peel back some of the mystery behind Revelation and discuss some of the ways its been misinterpreted and misused to create a fear-based religious construct.

Join us at the Marietta Brewing Company and be part of the conversation!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
