How did the early Messianic believers understand the book of Revelation? How did they understand its often strange and bewildering symbols? The answer is surprisingly simple: they used the Bible to interpret the Bible. Modern scholars have long noted the similarities between the images of Revelation and those found elsewhere in the Bible. But rarely has this been used as a method to interpret Revelation's meaning. By reviving this ancient method, Pastor Jeff Harrison brings clarity to John's visions, and makes their message make sense to us today. Harrison claims no privileged knowledge of the future, but restricts himself to the text of the Bible in the original languages, Jewish culture and religion, and well-known facts of history. The message that emerges is a challenging one, encouraging Christians to faithfulness and devotion in these dangerous last days. The Revelation of Jesus Christ to John is one of Pastor Harrison's most popular seminars. It has been presented to thousands of students in the U.S., Canada, the Philippines, and Taiwan. It reflects his study with some of the top Israeli archeologists and Christian scholars in Jerusalem, and is enriched by his years as a study tour teacher in Israel. This published version includes not only the same fresh translation of Revelation used in the seminars, but also a new translation of all supporting scripture verses from the original languages.

From the Back Cover:

In this seminar, now in book form, you will learn what came naturally to the early Jewish believers in Jesus--using the Bible to interpret the Bible.  As you do, the complex and mysterious images of Revelation will resolve into beautiful, fully Biblical teachings, preparing us not only for the challenges to come, but also for life in Messiah today.... How do students respond?  "Before attending this seminar, I wasn't comfortable with the Book of Revelation.  But now I can understand it myself directly from God's Word."  "It clarifies an otherwise difficult book."  "It removes the need for complex interpretations that are difficult to understand."  "It makes Revelation make sense."
