ELMM Retreat: Daniel, Apocalyptic, and the Early Jewish Period; Revelation
October 26, 2018 - October 27, 2018
Daniel, Apocalyptic, and the Early Jewish Period; Revelation
Dr. Walter Taylor, Trinity Lutheran Seminary
Daniel was written in a difficult time in which the Jewish people were confronted with religious, political, and cultural annihilation. To understand Daniel, we need to quickly survey the history leading up to the writing of this book.
Revelation has been frequently misused. It has been divorced from its historical setting and understood as a book of secret codes that program how God will act at the end of time. Revelation does tell us how the story will end: It will end with the defeat of all evil and with God united with God’s people.
