Zoom Bible Study of Revelation
Sept. 29 – November 3, 2022
Breaking the Code, Understanding the Book of Revelation
by Bruce M. Metzger, updated and revised by David A. DeSilva
Facilitated by Rev. Bob Kelley, Zoom host Margie Kelley
The Book of Revelation contains passages of great beauty and comfort, as well as passages that strike the casual reader as bizarre, bewildering, and sometimes frightening. How are readers today to discern God’s message in this peculiar part of the Bible? Breaking the Code Revised Edition provides a trustworthy guide to the rich symbolism of this important biblical book.
Noted biblical scholar Bruce M. Metzger presents the fruits of solid scholarship in a non-academic style. This revised edition includes updates based on current biblical research, as well as additional teaching from author and respected New Testament scholar David A. DeSilva.
