A Non-Violent Apocalypse: The Book of Revelation for Quakers
15 March 2022 - 12 April 2022
To the contemporary reader, the Book of Revelation can appear fantastical, shocking or incomprehensible. This course presents Revelation as a radical, nonviolent political manifesto that is vital to understanding the message of early Quakers, and still highly relevant to the 21st Century church.
By the end of this course, you will understand what an ‘apocalypse’ is, and who Revelation was originally written for. You will understand key symbols in Revelation, how early Quakers used them, and how these symbols can be used today. This course is ideal for those who are interested in Bible study, the early Quakers, or Quaker theology.
The course will take place over five 90-minute sessions. Each session will involve a combination of talks, discussion and Bible study. Extensive notes will be available to download.
Live sessions are every Tuesday at 19:00-20:30 (UK time).
All times are given as UK time. Make sure to check your own timezone at www.savvytime.com/converter/
