The portrait that John paints in the book of Revelation often appears strange and unusual to the modern reader. The living creatures with multiple eyes and wings surrounding the throne can become a distraction from the real scope of Revelation 4 and 5. On today’s podcast, Dr. Harris, Dr. Feiser, and Dr. Cooper dive into the imagery of these two notable chapters and draw our attention to the genuine worship of Jesus. We’ll discover the theocentric and missiological themes highlighted in these chapters and so prevalent through the book. Ultimately, chapters 4 and 5 focus on the throne and the worship of Jesus.
