Revelation in a Jewish Context II : Discovery
Have you been fascinated by the Book of Revelation, but felt that something must be missing in modern interpretations of this anti-Roman, Jewish document? This second course in our Revelation series follows and builds on the content introduced in the first course, Revelation in a Jewish Context I. This course will equip you to reread the Book of Revelation in its first-century context and then apply its ancient meaning to your own setting. This course covers such important topics as the so-called “Synagogue of Satan”, “Throne of Satan”, “Deeds of the Nicolaitans”, and many more.
You will be introduced to other ancient Jewish literary texts that will help you understand the concepts behind passages that routinely mystify readers. You will discover the missing links and reference points, unearthing the ancient message of the sacred text from beneath the rubble of history. You will begin to see beyond the artificially imposed (and mostly western) traditions that make it one of the most confusing and misunderstood texts in the entire Bible. Enroll now and discover the original meaning of this fascinating book.
“This is the most fascinating and wonderful teaching Prof. Shir that you have done…in my opinion. I have learned so much and will no doubt come back to this and go through it again. I just loved this. You made it so easy to understand and put a few pieces together that I didn’t think would fit…..but that’s why I just LOVE this study!” – Charlene Stevens
“Thank you, Prof Shir. My journey through IBC will not be complete without the full series on Revelation. The lecture is bringing so much ad hoc information together and I am really getting enlightened. Thank you for the time and effort you put in to unravel most of these coded messages and symbols.” – Michael Cyrus
