Summer Workshop: Professor Peter in Humboldt, KS
De-coding the Apocalypse: Study of the Book of Revelation
The title of the last book of the Bible is translated as “Revelation,” but its original title was “Apocalypse.” This word literally means “the unveiling.” The purpose of this book of the Bible is to unveil the purposes of God in human history. For many people, however, it remains seemingly veiled, as an obscure, mysterious, and con¬fusing book. The reason many people do not under¬stand the Apocalypse is because it is written in coded language that can only be interpreted by decoding its symbolism. This study will look at the most significant coded symbols of the book and the keys to their interpretation. It will provide a broad sweep of the major themes and message of Revelation, so that you can better understand this often misunderstood book of the Bible. This “unveiling” will enable you to see Christ, His Church, and history (past, present, and future) in a whole new light.
Peter currently serves as chairman of the department of practical theology. A year ago, he led our Lay Bible Institute on Theology through the book of Revelation and it was very well received (hence this workshop!). He also is working on a book about mid-sized congregations. Those who know him recognize that he brings a solid theological understanding of the church to the topic as well as an openness to how we live out our Lutheran ecclesiology in the world today.
