Today we start a brand new series on the JXN Cloud on the Book of Revelation. Many of you might be like me where you tried to stay away from this book because it was weird and… well… bloody. But as I’ve studied it over the last few years I’ve found that the messages this book are actually communicating are really beautiful and it’s gone from being my least favorite book of the Bible to one of my favorites. But to understand it better, you need to empty your mind of much of what you’ve been told about Revelation, because much of modern interpretation and modern fiction revolving around Revelation is very faulty. So if you’re looking for a good time to hop onto the JXN Cloud, this is a good time as we kick off something new! You can listen to it on our podcast, watch it on YouTube, and discuss anything on our Discord server.
Revelation is a bizarre book, but it’s an even more bizarre book when we read it 2,000 years after it was written. In order to understand it properly we need to first understand the literary genres that make it the book it is. A proper understanding of this will help us to read it as John intended it to be read and the whole book will start to make more sense and become less strange to us.
