“We invite you to delve deeply into this amazing book of the Bible in our Biblical theology course on the Book of Revelation,” says Fr. Shabu Joseph.
Fr. Shabu adds, “The Year 2020 has been one where we have been left wondering whether the end of the world is almost near. Immediately our thoughts turn to the Book of Revelation for answers. We may have heard many talking about the Book of Revelation as the Book of our times. Many predictions on the future these days have been made on it.”
“The question,” Fr. Shabu asks, “What was the mind of the author who wrote the book of Revelation? How do we actually interpret what is written?”
