  • Exegesis Of Rev 1:120 - 1,447 words
    Exegesis Of Rev. 1:1-20 Revelation as a whole is often viewed as a very hard book to understand.

The book was written to encourage the new Christians at the seven churches to hold fast and not give in the emperor worship that was beginning to be enforced. John had already been exiled to the i ...

It serves as a direct source of information from a person that was taught everything about being an Indian. The information comes from someone that wasnt born into the culture, and I ...
