Revelation | [Dr. Bill Creasy]

Revelation

Dr. Creasy has noted on many occasions that the Bible—in its final, finished form—is a unified literary work that is linear in structure; its main character is God; its conflict is sin; and its theme is redemption. Viewing the Bible from this perspective, the curtain rises on our story in Genesis 1, and it falls in Revelation 22. From a literary perspective, Revelation is the final chapter in a sprawling 2,000 page, 66-chapter story.

Publisher's Summary

Dr. Creasy has noted on many occasions that the Bible—in its final, finished form—is a unified literary work that is linear in structure. Its main character is God, its conflict is sin, and its theme is redemption. Viewing the Bible from this perspective, the curtain rises on our story in Genesis 1, and it falls in Revelation 22. From a literary perspective, Revelation is the final chapter in a sprawling 2,000 page, 66-chapter story. As the conflict of sin enters the world in Genesis 3, so is it finally and definitively resolved in Revelation 20. Then, in Revelation 21 and 22 our linear narrative bends back around on itself and we have a new beginning: We are back in the Garden of Eden—the New Jerusalem—where there is “no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

In the New Jerusalem “God’s dwelling place is among people, and he will dwell with them.” In the New Jerusalem God will walk with his people in the cool of the day, just as he did with Adam and Eve at the start in the Garden of Eden. In Revelation 21-22 we come full circle. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as together we bring down the curtain on the story of fallen humanity and celebrate a new beginning, redeemed by God!

    "Fantastic presentation of Revelations"
    Would you listen to Revelation again? Why?

    Absolutely, this was a fantastic presentation of revelations. As matter of fact I may listen to this book every six months or so that as a Christian I can look forward to what's ahead with reassurance and with confidence. Since we as Christians believe in what's happened in the past as predicted through prophecy in the Old Testament how much more so is Revelations pointing toward the glorious return of Jesus


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Revelation?

    The discriptions of the visions and the difficulty in conveying the descriptions orally. After his explanation as to the difficulties in expressing visions into words it was much easier for me to think about what John actually may have seen. Also the descriptions of previous prophecies such as in Daniel and how these correlated with the vision of John.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard the narrators performance in the past but certainly enjoyed this presentation


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Revelation the unveiling


    Any additional comments?

    Yes I really enjoyed this book from the standpoint that it is a book that can be listened to over and over again. Also there is so much historical as well as relational and easy to understand information that goes on in the book

    "okay, but hoped for better."

    I am a little surprised that this Bible Study is on Audible, as it is more like a podcast than an AudioBook. It is taken from a Sunday School or Classroom study, including background noise, and the occasional question/answer.

    That said, it is well presented, although occasional clarification os the subject is warranted, due the amount of background information and historical context that is mentioned.

    This is by no means an exhaustive study of the book of Revelation, not is it a brief overview. It is somewhere in the middle. It neither gives the beginner a manageable bite size, not does it add a great deal of insight to the well-read.

    Story
    "Dr. Bill hit it out of the park with this one"
    What did you love best about Revelation?

    Dr. Bill s an expert the history, the archaeology ,and what it was like to live and different times. There is enough gravitas there for senior Christians and newbies. Hetakes teaching the word of God seriously and approaches it with humor!

    Dr. Bill states what the Lord says,, and then might go off into various interpretations but iin the end he is word-based always word based!

    He makes the Bible fun!

    Dr. Bill has opened up the Bible to me and thousands of others! He is a gem if I did not get to meet him on earth than I will certainly meet him in heaven in which I will give him a big hug!

    That not only goes for Daniel but for other books of the Bible! I originally started listening to his series in preparation of precepts upon precepts studying revelation! and it made it a whole lot easier on me! I am ones and those who actually understands revelation!


    I wish there were more people out there like Dr. Bill and there would be more Christians without a doubt!
