Beginning in September 2019, VBVMI will launch a completely-revised verse-by-verse study through the book of Revelation...our first teaching of this book in nearly 9 years! This study is a fully revised version of our most popular and widely-heard Bible study. This study will run from September 2019 to April 2020, and new lessons will appear weekly.
Once the Revelation 2020 course starts on September 10th, our existing Revelation 2011 course materials will be removed from the website.
Many Christians consider Revelation to be a mysterious and even frightening book of scripture. Some avoid studying it, and among those who do try, many find it confusing. Why does the book confound so many and give rise to so many conflicting interpretations? The answer: because it's the final book of the Bible.
The Bible with its 66 books can be compared to a novel having 66 chapters. Like a novel, the storyline builds from front to back, with the characters, themes and plot elements introduced early and developed across many chapters. Obviously, the Bible doesn't read like most novels, but it was intended to be understood as a single work, and it did have a single Author.
Now consider what would happen if you selected a novel from the shelves of your local bookstore and decided to read only the final chapter. How much of that final chapter would you understand? Most likely, you would be thoroughly confused. Naturally, only after reading the entire book would the final chapter make any sense.
Likewise, we could see Revelation as the final chapter in God's 66-chapter novel called the Bible. In the same way that we must read a novel cover to cover before understanding it properly, so must Bible students have an understanding of the Bible's first 65 books before they can truly understand its final book.
Under these circumstances, a verse-by-verse teaching of Revelation would be a challenging endeavor. How do you teach the last chapter in a novel when you can't be sure your audience has studied the first 65 books? The answer is simple: you teach them the entire Bible!
Consequently, our Revelation study examines not only the 22 chapters of John's vision, it also covers relevant sections of Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, Ruth, Kings and Chronicles, Job, the Psalms, Daniel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, all the minor prophets, the Gospels and the Epistles. Virtually every book of the Bible is consulted during our 34-hour course, leading many VBVM students to say that our Revelation study is an attempt to teach the entire Bible in a single course. We know no other way to do it!
Simply put, there is no better study of end times than the VBVMI study of Revelation.
You can choose to follow the videos or use the MP3 audio teaching. Each study also comes with complete PDF study notes (over 200,000 words!), and full-color visual aids for projection or black and white visual aids for printing. Use all the materials to study for yourself or to teach the class to others.
