In the first century, when the book of Revelation was written, Jewish Christians were torn between the old and the new. What place did the temple and the priesthood have in the kingdom of God? All discussion was about to be brutally cut short as Jewish bandits roamed the countryside - murdering, raping, and robbing at will - and finally forcing the Romans to destroy the beloved temple. How could the Jewish Christians stand in these devastating times? As everything they had been taught and understood was collapsing in ashes around them, where could they get the instruction and encouragement to go on?
In the first century Christians of all races were about to undergo the first large-scale persecution. Their friends and loved ones would be tortured and murdered. Could the infant church survive the fury of the mighty Roman Empire? What words of instruction and encouragement would Jesus have for them to keep them holding on?
Out of the darkness and confusion of these trouble times shone the Book of Revelation. It showed Jesus as Victorious over every enemy. It warned of the disasters and persecutions about to take place. And it revealed the judgment of God on His enemies and the victory of the church. It was the message of hope the church needed to hear.
