N.T. Wright on the Revelation to St. John the Divine

Wright gave this lecture at United Methodist-related Duke Divinity School back in October. I believe my brother, Nance (a divinity student), was in attendance.

Did you know? "The Divine," the title given to St. John in some older translations of the Bible (see the KJV, for example) is an old-timey way to say "theologian" (thus, many pastors and theologians have a Masters of Divinity degree). St. John is one of the four "canonical theologians" that were lifted up in particular by the Early Church. Do you know the other three?

Thank you so much for posting this. It was a breath of fresh air in comparison to what I see as the doom and gloom of the common evangelical view of Revelations.
