The Beginning Of The End: The Lion and The Lamb

All stories have a beginning, and almost all have an end. Redemption’s Story is one of the few that will continue into eternity. This study of Revelation closes out our 8 year series by pointing forward to the end of this age and the beginning of the next. It is a celebration of the victory of the Lamb, a highlight of eternity that encompasses the great story of redemption and sees it complete, as sin and death are ultimately done away with—and not content with the bruising they received at the Cross, God will crush with finality his enemies. Redemption’s Story consummates with the eternal worship of the redeeming love of God, shown in perfection through Jesus Christ, at the foot of throne.

For those wanting to meet with others to study this book in partnership with the preaching schedule, a ‘suggested study passage’ is included below. A number of good study methods are out there, but a great one can be found at the RANSOM site here (a printable version can be downloaded at the bottom of the linked page).
