Audio Sample:

From the time of the early Christians, the Book of Revelation has fascinated and puzzled its readers in equal measure. Now, you can join a leading New Testament scholar in exploring this important—and often misunderstood—biblical book.

Also known as the Apocalypse of John, Revelation has left a profound mark on Western culture. For many modern Catholics, however, Revelation remains a mystery, and it is rarely preached or read at Sunday Mass.

The Victory of Christ: Exploring the Book of Revelation takes you on an eye-opening journey through this influential yet puzzling book. You will learn about its origins on the Greek island of Patmos, apocalyptic writing in the early Church, and how its original audience might have understood the text. Through exploring how the timeless metaphors in Revelation have been interpreted throughout the ages, you will gain new insights into the New Testament.

As you move through the Book of Revelation, you will explore its mysterious descriptions of the heavenly world, its powerful visions of plagues and cosmic disaster, and its complex yet reassuring description of the New Jerusalem. Along the way, you will examine vital questions about John’s apocalyptic vision.

Above all, you will come to understand the book’s self-designation as “a revelation of Jesus Christ.” In witnessing Christ’s victory over the forces of evil and chaos, you will emerge from this course with an invigorated sense of hope and understanding of the Word of God.
