9781590386385: Opening the Seven Seals: The Visions of John the Revelator

Do you sometimes feel lost when you read the Book of Revelation? Do the images and actions seem bewildering and the meaning confusing? Opening the Seven Seals combines outstanding LDS and biblical scholarship. Richard D. Draper, a popular Education Week speaker, discusses the themes of Revelation, examining the book section by section. Some questions he addresses include: What is apocalyptic literature? What do the various beasts represent? What is the significance of numbers and their use? What are the differences and purposes of the seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven bowls? How does the book testify of Jesus Christ and warn of Satan? What does the book say about the last days, the Millennium, and the final judgment? Opening the Seven Seals will help the reader find the fulfillment of this promise: “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” (Rev. 1:3).
