Date: Wednesday, January 25, 7-8 pm

Location: Saint Paul University, room G105

Description: For most readers, the Book of Revelation, also known as the Apocalypse, is filled with fearsome images that speak of judgment and punishment. Although there are some disconcerting images in the book, the Apocalypse is in facta proclamation of the Good News that God has triumphed over evil and has accomplished his plan of salvation for his people. This webinar will focus on the nature of the symbols of the Apocalypse and their message of hope and salvation.
