“The Revelation of John” – David Downey

Biblical Storyteller David Downey presents the entire Biblical book of Revelation from memory over the course of two Chapel Gatherings in the Seminary.

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 includes The Prologue, The Seven Churches, The Seven Seals, and The Seven Trumpets

Thursday, October 17, 2013 includes The Dragon and the Beasts, The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath, The Fall of Babylon and The Judgement, and The New Heaven and the New Earth.

Because hearing the spoken Word is very different from reading it, Downey suggests two things as you listen to Revelation:

“First, do not try to follow along in your Bible.  It will only create a distraction and is probably a different translation anyway.”

“Secondly, as you listen, try not to interpret, or analyze, or try to understand what you hear.  Simply listen to the images and symbols and descriptions and let the creative power of God speak to you through the hearing of His Word.”

The entire campus community is invited to every chapel service on campus. Eastern Mennonite Seminary hosts chapel gatherings in Martin Chapel every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 11:00.
