157: The Hymn to God and the Lamb in Revelation 7

January 28, 2021

This episode explores the call-and-response hymn in Revelation chapter 7. In doing so, we notice that Revelation's ideal readers are offering worship unto both God and to Jesus within a single hymn. We discuss the implications of worshipping the Lamb alongside the only true God and we suggest that God's identity is not threatened within this worship practice.

155: Hymnic Worship in Revelation Chapter 4

January 14, 2021

The Book of Revelation offers seven hymns that tell us much about the worship practices of the early church. This episode looks at Revelation's first hymn, located in chapter 4. The object is the one seated upon the throne, who is repeatedly expressed with singular pronouns and verbs. We also look at how the ideal readers of Revelation are invited to participate in this hymn through active worship practices, by singing about God's unique role as the Creator, and even acknowledging creation's preexistence within God's foreknowledge.

154: Jesus as the Word of God in Revelation

154: Jesus as the Word of God in Revelation

January 7, 2021

In Revelation 19:13 Jesus is called "the word of God." Is this a reference to the Prologue of John's Gospel, where the word is with God in the beginning? Or is the word of God a descriptive reference to Jesus' own preaching of the gospel of the kingdom? This episode explores how the phrase "word of God" functions in the Book of Revelation, looking closely at Jesus himself as a faithful witness of the good news.
