Revelation

The Book of Revelation is the strangest book in the Bible, and the most controversial. Instead of stories and moral teaching, it offers only visions—dreams and nightmares, the Four Horsemen, earthquakes, plagues and war. In the climactic battle scene, Jesus appears as a divine warrior, Satan is thrown into a pit, and all humans who had died faithful to God reign over the earth for 1,000 years.This narrative's puzzle of how and when the world will end in an apocalyptic state has consumed christian artists for over a millennium.This gallery is meant to provide a visual representation of some of the events that occur in St Johns predictions.
