The outline of the Book of Revelation is in the first chapter, nineteenth verse. The author John tells us the book is about what he saw, the way things are, and the way things will be. Most people do not find this a simple book to understand. Maybe that’s why God promises a special blessing to anyone who reads it! (See Revelation 1:3)
While much of the writing here may be mysterious, let’s not miss the priceless privilege of holding this book in our hands. Since the Resurrection these are the only words Jesus has spoken to us personally, and they have been preserved for our benefit.
We hope you have enjoyed this 66-week series on the books of the Bible that began way back in January of 2013. If you missed any along the way or you’d like to go back and read introductions for all the books from Genesis on, you’ll find them here.
