Seminar Study: Eschatology- Familiar Patterns
Speaker: Brent McCrory
On one hand it is certainly understandable that many people are bewildered and confused when it comes to the book of Revelation. It’s symbolism (e.g., beasts, dragons, angels, a lion, etc.) arrests our senses. For those who have been listening, we have already touched on the symbolism a bit, and will do more in the future too.
Yet in addition to the symbolism, the style (literary techniques) of Revelation seems odd. However, the literary techniques of repetition and recapitulation should not surprise us; they are found throughout the Bible. Indeed, maybe the book is not as strange as it seems.
