For most Bible readers, the book of Revelation is a riddle that
fascinates and frustrates. Scholars and teachers have proposed
different keys to its interpretation. However, neither the
`futurist' nor the historical-critical approach adequately
demonstrates the ongoing, vital relevance of the Apocalypse for the
contemporary church.Brian Tabb stresses the importance of the
canonical context of the book of Revelation. He argues that it
presents itself as the climax of biblical prophecy that shows how
various Old Testament prophecies and patterns find their
consummation in the present and future reign of Jesus Christ, who
decisively defeats his foes, saves his people and restores all
things. Tabb considers key themes in the book: the triune God;
Christ's followers and foes; God's plan for salvation, judgment and
restoration; and God's word. He also shows how the book's symbolic
visions shape believers' worldviews around what is true, good and
beautiful according to God's revealed standards, and motivate them
to live obediently and counter-culturally in the world as faithful
witnesses to Jesus.
