Lecture 3, Understanding the Seven Letters:
The first chapter of Revelation concludes with a stunning heavenly scene. Jesus, the risen and glorious Conqueror, stands in majesty in the midst of His churches. Even though a glimpse of Jesus in glory is enough to bring John to his knees, Jesus speaks gentle words of blessing to His people. As we begin to explore Christ’s letters to the seven churches, we will behold a picture not just of Jesus’ sovereign majesty but also of His tender, pastoral heart for His people.
