LESSON 6 Living under the Promised King Revelation 1.4-20
John begins his letter to the seven churches with an extended greeting that highlights Jesus’ saving activity on behalf of his people that will end with his return. This is placed within the ultimate power and authority of God, the Great King. John also sees a vision of Jesus, not looking weak and broken, but powerful and full of authority. This beginning sets the scene for the rest of the book of Revelation.
