Since the questions are somewhat controversial, and since my answers are not necessarily textbook, I’d be interested in your reaction to what I say in this interview on the Crossway blog. Here are the questions:
What’s the best way to prepare to interpret apocalyptic literature in general and Revelation in particular?
If a pastor knows that his congregation takes a very different view of Revelation than he does, how should he go about preaching the book? Should he be trying to convert them to or away from a dispensationalist perspective and why?
What is the relationship between the judgments that accompany the seals, trumpets, and bowls? Are these sequential or recapitulatory?
What’s with the exodus imagery in Revelation? Didn’t Jesus fulfill the new exodus and return from exile in his death and resurrection? Why are we getting that imagery again in Revelation?
