Lecture 18, The Splendor & Fall of Babylon the Great:
Revelation’s seventh cycle begins with a vivid and detailed description of Babylon. Appearing as a prostitute who has seduced many nations and peoples, Babylon exudes arrogance, indulgence, and self-glorification. However exalted and unconquerable she may appear, the angels announce that her doom is certain. In this lesson, Dr. Godfrey will examine John’s account of Babylon the great, noting the warning, hope, and encouragement that this narrative offers to God’s people.
