Part 1: The Revelation of Jesus Christ
Series: End Times: What's Going On?
Stuart Briscoe
Revelation 1:1-20

As we approach Revelation, we should bear three things in mind: It is "Apocalypse," a unique literary genre that requires careful study; it is a "prophecy," which deals with proclamation and prediction; and a "letter," which handles pastoral concerns.

I. The Prologue: Introducing Revelation. vv. 1-3

A. Revelation is an "unveiling" of Jesus Christ by God to John for his servants.

B. Revelation deals with issues that "must soon take place."

C. Revelation is "The word of God" and the "testimony of Jesus."

D. Revelation contains a special blessing for those who "take it to heart."

II. The Salutation. vv. 4-8

A. A letter from John to the seven churches of Asia Minor.

B. "Grace" (Greek) and "Peace" (Hebrew) from:
1. He who "is, was, and is to come." See Exodus 3:14
