The Book of Revelation #14
In this lecture we continue our kite-level survey of chapters 4 and 5, paying particular attention to the scroll that the Lamb takes from the hand of the One Who was, Who is, and Who is to come.
Was the scroll with God the Father from all eternity? Why did St. John see it just now? Why was St. John weeping?
Next, we look at Luke 10, Romans 8, and Ephesians 3 in order to see that what is spoken about in Revelation is not foreign to the rest of Scripture but is part and parcel of the Christian message and should not be ignored.
