The Book of Revelation

Lecture no. 23 from the course: The New Testament

 The Book of Revelation

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The Revelation of John is probably the most fascinating book in the New Testament, and almost certainly the most widely misunderstood. This lecture explores apocalyptic writing as a symbol-rich literary form, and argues that this particular Christian apocalypse is best read within its own historical context of religious persecution under the Roman Empire.

Wonderful lectures for scholarly study, pleasure, or even while jogging. This particular course gets my highest rating but I've come to expect excellence from all things that are Great Courses Plus!
