In Revelation 1:9 we read:
“I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering, and kingdom, and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus; was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.”
Hello. I’m Kenneth Wright, the minister of the Church of Christ in New Iberia, Louisiana. Welcome to In Light of the Word.
Here in the beginning of the Book of Revelation, John has revealed a timeless truth, and he does it so subtly that those of us who are 2000 years removed from the original people and language, may miss it.
It’s a truth that those in the first century needed to hear. But also, a truth that we today, some 2000 years removed from the events of long ago, need not only to hear, but grasp the concept.
There is so much controversy over the imagery in the Revelation that a person doesn’t know what to believe.
So, go get your Bible and study along with me as explore the Biblical principles and imagery found in this wonderful letter from God – In Light of the Word.
