“The Book of Revelation: A New Beginning” contains the hidden secrets of Saint John’s Revelation, and as you know, it is one of the most debated and most difficult books of all the scriptures to read and understand because of the extreme symbolism tied to it. Man has always assumed the word of God’s prophets and their stories were indisputable just because of their eminence in interpreted them as being true. Man has forgotten the history of himself, Earth, God, the origin of the universe, and how the scriptures have been documented, interpreted, and strictly passed down by our ancestors and religious leaders. As symbolic as Revelation is it has nothing to do with the end days or even about a solitary Anti-Christ as we understand it nor is it about Jesus coming to save you. In truth, Saint John’s Revelation is your own guide showing you that you no longer need to look at yourself as a sinner because you have bared your cross, like Jesus, and now the time has come for you to ascend to a higher state of Mind. The book of Revelation: “A New Beginning” is a book that will help open the gates of your soul memories so you can become aware of your own divineness, and that you are a God too. My fellow Gods, what is coming to an end is the old ways of perceiving and understanding God. It is not that God is a mystery. It is you that is the mystery, and when fear is resolved within, you are then ready to open up to the hidden secrets behind the Book of Revelation that religions have kept as a secret for thousands of years, either on purpose or because of ignorance.

The New Jerusalem in the Book of Revelation

There is a development between expectation for the rebuilding of the New Jerusalem/Temple in the Old Testament and the coming of the New Jerusalem/Temple in Revelation. In Revelation, there is a dynamic relation between the New Jerusalem and the Heavenly Jerusalem: the New Jerusalem is the descent of the Heavenly Jerusalem. Moreover, there is no Temple building which was expected as the eschatological promise in the Old Testament but rather God and the Lamb is the Temple. How can this shift be explained? Pilchan Lee examines the exegetical tradition which existed between the Old Testament and Revelation. He assumes that as the exegetical tradition, the early Jewish (apocalyptic) literature functions as a key element for forming the idea of the New Jerusalem in Revelation. John's main argument is that the church (which is symbolized by several images) is placed in heaven now (chapters 4-20) and the church (which is symbolized by the New Jerusalem) will descend to the earth from heaven in the future (21-22).

A startling exploration of the history of the most controversial book of the Bible, by the bestselling author of Beyond Belief. Through the bestselling books of Elaine Pagels, thousands of readers have come to know and treasure the suppressed biblical texts known as the Gnostic Gospels. As one of the world's foremost religion scholars, she has been a pioneer in interpreting these books and illuminating their place in the early history of Christianity. Her new book, however, tackles a text that is firmly, dramatically within the New Testament canon: The Book of Revelation, the surreal apocalyptic vision of the end of the world . . . or is it? In this startling and timely book, Pagels returns The Book of Revelation to its historical origin, written as its author John of Patmos took aim at the Roman Empire after what is now known as "the Jewish War," in 66 CE. Militant Jews in Jerusalem, fired with religious fervor, waged an all-out war against Rome's occupation of Judea and their defeat resulted in the desecration of Jerusalem and its Great Temple. Pagels persuasively interprets Revelation as a scathing attack on the decadence of Rome. Soon after, however, a new sect known as "Christians" seized on John's text as a weapon against heresy and infidels of all kinds-Jews, even Christians who dissented from their increasingly rigid doctrines and hierarchies. In a time when global religious violence surges, Revelations explores how often those in power throughout history have sought to force "God's enemies" to submit or be killed. It is sure to appeal to Pagels's committed readers and bring her a whole new audience who want to understand the roots of dissent, violence, and division in the world's religions, and to appreciate the lasting appeal of this extraordinary text.

Lectures to 57 priests in Dornach Sept 5-22, 1924 (CW 346)John's Book of Revelation, the Apocalypse, has been subjected to countless theological and academic interpretations over the years, usually based on theories and abstract speculations. Rudolf Steiner, however, discussed the Book of Revelation through direct experience and knowledge of the spiritual truths contained in John's mysterious imagery. Rudolf Steiner had already presented his insights on the Apocalypse to various audiences, but in 1924 he presented a completely new perspective. This time, his comments were in response to requests from priests of The Christian Community, the movement for religious renewal, which itself had taken form on the basis of Steiner's insights. This book will be of value to anyone who would like a fresh perspective on the most enigmatic book of the New Testament. Includes eight color plates of blackboard drawings.

The New Jerusalem in the Revelation of John

There are two major entities at the close of the book of Revelation that explain the author's understanding of forthcoming life with God: the Celestial City (the heavenly Jerusalem) and the cosmic Lamb. The marriage of these two marks the concluding highpoint of John the Seer's work. What are the entities in question? How do they marry and what is the significance of that event for those who believe in Jesus as cosmic Lord? In The New Jerusalem in the Revelation of John, Bruce Malina offers insights into the concluding vision of the book of Revelation to assist Bible readers to understand what the visionary of Revelation said, and meant to say, to his first-century Mediterranean audience. The New Jerusalem and the Revelation of John sets out comparative models of what sorts of cities existed during the time of the New Testament and what it meant to live in an ancient Mediterranean city. It further explains the significance of the celestial marriage of the City and the Lamb. The result is a set of reading scenarios that describe and explain Revelation's closing visions, which mediate the theology of John the Seer. The definition and comparative model of the city in The New Jerusalem and the Revelation of John is also useful for persons interested in understanding those first "urban" members of Jesus groups addressed by other New Testament documents. Chapters are "Presuppositions about Language and Reading," "The Genre of the Book of Revelation," "The Holy City in the Sky," and "The Cosmic Lamb Marries." Includes relevant charts.?Malina in these reflections has mediated a significant approach to Revelation.? Irish Theological Quarterly?Against the commonplace notion that Revelation is a morbid forecast of doom, death, and destruction, Malina demonstrates the upbeat and hope-promoting force of its conclusion: a life-affirming vision of a marriage of the Cosmic Lamb (Jesus) and his bride, the Celestial City (the new and perfect Jerusalem), graphic astronomical symbols of life with God. Malina serves as an informative tour guide introducing the modern reader to the ancient world of John, its urban life, its occupation with astral phenomena as signs of the time, and Christianity's utopic vision of new life with God.? Rev. John H. Elliott Department of Theology and Religious Studies University of San Francisco?Malina has done it again. His penetrating insights cut through the fog of interpretations beclouding the Book of Revelation to clarify its concluding vision. God will be henceforth present among humans on earth in the New Jerusalem, a city descended from the sky that contains the Throne of God and the celestial Lamb, cosmic symbol of Jesus. The Mediterranean cultural aptness of this explanation, Malina's specialty, highly recommends it as John the astral prophet's intended meaning for all his readers.? John J. Pilch Author of The Cultural World of Jesus and The Cultural Dictionary of the Bible?The New Jerusalem in the Revelation of John is vintage Malina: provocative, at times humorous, fascinating, devastating to conventional understandings, blunt, and passionately devoted to the social sciences, especially cultural anthropology, as key to interpreting the New Testament. Malina's new work continues to unfold the implications of his earlier research into ancient astrology and the book of Revelation. The result is a vivid and perceptive reading of the new Jerusalem and the Lamb that locates them squarely in ancient conceptions of the city and the sky.? Walter F. Taylor, Jr., Ph.D. Ernest W. and Edith S. Ogram Professor of New Testament Studies Trinity Lutheran Seminary Columbus, Ohio?This volume is an eminently readable, commonsense approach to aspects of the Book of Revelation. . . . It complements Malina?s earlier work on the genre of the Book of Revelation, and offers not only a clear understanding of how to read ancient documents, but also a sensible, persuasive interpretation of this part of the Book. . . . Malina is to be congratulated for his insight, commonsense, helpful commentary, and his clarity.? T.R. Hobbs Hamilton, Ontario
