Why is Revelation Filled with Symbols?

Symbols in RevelationWhy is Revelation filled with symbols ?

John was a prisoner when he wrote it, and some believe he used symbols to smuggle it to the outside world. Perhaps he tried to convince the prison authorities that these writings were the writings of a madman. We don’t have an absolute answer. But it is true that his initial audience, because of their knowledge of the Old Testament, would have been able to connect a lot of the dots. Our verse-by-verse Revelation study, beginning January 5th, will look at all the symbols and see what they mean to us today. – Pastor Ken
