A Challenge Ahead

I’m starting a Sunday School series with the Juniors and Seniors at Arborlawn that looks at the book of Revelation.  I feel like this is a topic that many people tend to avoid because we’re not sure what angle to take.  I’m in that camp.  I have found a great book that makes the book a lot more approachable (it also happens to be written by one of my seminary professors) and that I will be using to frame the lessons.  I know the study will be tricky, but I also know that it will be worth it to have the students thinking about what we typically hear something is “about” and being able to shed conventional thinking and open their minds to something different.

 

Are there topics that you generally avoid teaching?  What are they?  What’s holding you back?

    Love the Kirk Cameron pic. If anyone knows how the world ends its him.

    Okay, Dave! Can’t wait to hear your take on this! Just last month I read an article–the premise was that most of Revelations was a veiled critique of some of the cultural/political events going on at the time it was written. I have no idea what to think about it because just like Bryan said this morning, this is one of those books that isn’t preached about very often. But even though I am clueless, I’m still asking for a new license plate if I’m issued one that includes the numerical sequence “666.”
