Book of Revelation Audio Lessons

Click here for Dr. Cook’s Complete Study Notes on Revelation

The apostle John wrote the book of Revelation while exiled on the island of Patmos by the Emperor Domitian (A.D. 81-96). John wrote the book of Revelation to seven churches that resided in Asia (modern day Turkey). These churches are listed in Revelation chapters 2-3. Concerning the date of writing, Thomas Constable states, “Some of the early church fathers (Clement of Alexandria, Eusebius, Irenaeus, and Victorinus) wrote that the Apostle John experienced exile on the island of Patmos during Domitian’s reign.”[1] Accepting their testimony helps to date the book around A.D. 95-96.

Concerning a hermetical approach, this author will follow a normal, grammatical, historical approach to the book of Revelation. This approach considers words and phrases within their context, and reads them according to their normal meaning, unless something within a passage indicates it should be interpreted otherwise. There are symbols used throughout the book of Revelation; however, many of those symbols are either interpreted within the passage itself, or can be interpreted by similar passages that provide understanding. For example, the seven stars are angels (Rev 1:20), the great dragon is Satan (Rev 12:9), and the leopard, bear, and lion (Rev 13:2) resemble the animals mentioned in Daniel (Dan 7:4-6). A plain reading of Scripture protects the reader from fanciful interpretations. Charles Ryrie states, “If one does not use the plain, normal, or literal method of interpretation, all objectivity is lost.”[2]

When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, and literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths, clearly indicate otherwise.[3]

The purpose of the book of Revelation is to reveal Jesus Christ (Rev 1:1-20), His authority over the church (Rev 2-3) and the world (Rev 6-18). After His Second Coming (Rev 3:3, 11; 16:15; 19:11-16; 22:7, 12, 20), He will establish His kingdom on earth and will reign forever (Rev 11:15; 12:10; Rev 20:1-6).

Book of Ruth Audio Lessons

Book of Ruth – Complete Study Notes

Ruth the Moabitess

The book of Ruth is titled after a Moabitess who had married Boaz, a Hebrew. The book was written during the period of the Judges (Ruth 1:1), and highlighted God’s sovereignty, loyal-love and providential care over those who trusted Him during difficult times (Ruth 2:12). Ruth—a Moabitess—trusted God and agreed to care for Naomi, her mother-in-law, who had lost her husband and two sons (Ruth 1:1-22). Boaz, as the kinsman-redeemer (Ruth 3:9), is a model of Christ, who willingly redeemed us with His own blood (1 Pet 1:17-19). The book also reveals God’s grace in saving a Gentile woman who was included in the genealogical line of King David (Ruth 4:17-22) and Jesus Christ (Matt 1:5).
