The Revelation to John in Christian theology and testimony
Lecturer: Dr. Stephen Curkpatrick
Revelation (apokalypsis) is central to Christian theology. The Revelation to John is a specific expression of Christian writing that makes explicit many aspects of revelation that are tacit within gospels and epistles. Some of these aspects include hyperbolic textures in expression of biblical eschatology and the seeming surrealism of futurity with the signature ears to hear for the response of faith. This unit will explore The Revelation to John, its peculiar interface between literary style and theological overture, which is cast for specific reception of Christian promise and testimony within difficult contexts of human life.
