Apocalyptic literature is often viewed as hard for people. We don’t think they can get their minds around it and we convince ourselves that there are just too many strange things going on that don’t make sense. We need to dig deep and start to appreciate the imagery. Then we will find that this literature has an incredible capacity to bring hope in the triumph of Jesus Christ.

The Gospels are the heart of the Bible. They declare that the center of human history is found in God's act of sending His only Son. And this message must be proclaimed, from the first days of the church (captured in Acts) to now. Yet, these five books are also complex, drawing together discourse and narrative, history and prophecy and apocalyptic, theology and ethics.
