Revelations in Context

Tradition has it that St John the Evangelist, also known as St John the Divine or St John Theologian, composed the book of Revelation in a cave on the island of Patmos whilst in exile. Much of the book of Revelation has puzzled much of the church for much of that last 2,000 years.

The dramatised reading of Revelation, Coming Soon, which was performed in the Abbey last year drew many appreciative comments and not a few questions about the book. In this Study Dr Rich Wyld and Dr Christina Lemoignan will show us how to approach the Book of Revelation and understand how this text spoke to its first readers in the early church and what it might have to say to us today.
