From the time of the early Christians, the book of Revelation has fascinated and puzzled its readers in equal measure. Now you can join one of the world’s leading experts in exploring this important - and often misunderstood - biblical book.
Also known as the Apocalypse of John, Revelation has left a profound mark on Western culture. For many, however, Revelation remains a mystery, and it is rarely preached or read at Sunday Mass. Ian Boxall (D.Phil., Oxford), a celebrated New Testament professor at The Catholic University and the author of numerous books on Revelation, is the perfect guide to help demystify this powerful text.
This compelling series takes you on an eye-opening journey through this influential yet puzzling book. You will learn about its origins on the Greek island of Patmos, apocalyptic writing in the early church, and how its original audience might have understood the text. Through exploring how the timeless metaphors in Revelation have been interpreted throughout the ages, you will gain new insights into the New Testament.
Above all, you will come to understand the book's self-designation as "a revelation of Jesus Christ". In witnessing Christ's victory over the forces of evil and chaos, you will emerge from this course with an invigorated sense of hope and understanding of the word of God.
This course is part of the Learn25 collection and includes a free PDF study guide.

A superb introduction to the Book of Revelation!
In my studies on the Book of Revelation, Ian Boxall’s commentary (The Revelation of Saint John, Black’s New Testament Commentary) is on my top three list. It is fantastic! His commentary made me interested in his lectures. I’m so glad I purchased them! It is a superb introduction to the book. His research is top-notch, his presentation is well-organized, concise, and clear, and his topics were wisely chosen. I highly recommend them, to Catholics and Protestants alike.
