The Apocalyptic Turn-off

June 6, 2009

I have been listening through some of the Simeon Trust lectures at College Church, Wheaton, IL on preaching through apocalyptic literature.  D. A. Carson’s opening lecture included a good introduction to the topic.  In one of his opening comments, Carson mentioned that if he was teaching through a course on the book of Revelation, he would first assign 500 pages of apocalyptic literature of the Book of Noah, 2 Enoch or 4 Ezra, so that after your eyes glaze over you would get to the Apocalypse of John and it would be “easy-reading”.  

Note to self – If the opportunity ever arises to take a course on the book of Revelation from D. A. Carson, don’t take it.
