Historical Prelude to Revelation

Lesson Summary

This is a supplement to our Revelation background series. We’re going to take a look at significant events in the period between the Jewish Revolt of 66CE, including the destruction of the Jewish Temple in 70, through the mid-90s that resulted in John’s exile on Patmos, where he received the Revelation.

This interval history is surprisingly relevant if we wish to better understand the context for Revelation.

Even if history wasn’t your best subject in school, I believe you’ll find this background helpful as we prepare to study Revelation.
