This meetup group is for anyone in the area who wants to study the Bible with a small group. We are welcoming people from any church, religion, or worldview to study the Bible. We study to learn more about Jesus the Christ because of our grateful commitment to him. Whether you are a Christian or simply want to know more about Christianity, this is an opportunity for you to know more about its founder, Jesus. Join us as we study the Bible!
• About Apocalyptic Literature and our Study
The term Apocalyptic, comes from the Greek word "apokalyptein" which means, “uncover or reveal”. Apocalyptic literature is a genre of prophetical writing that developed in post-Exilic Jewish culture and was popular among early Christians. Professor Stephen Cook and author of "The Apocalyptic Literature" says, “The apocalyptic worlds of the Bible peer beyond mundane political and social realities, revealing a new world coming...the literature recognizes that this better world, while a fundamental human longing, will never come as a human achievement. It comes only with the advent of God’s sovereign rule on earth.” Apocalyptic writing can be found in Old (first) Testament in books like Ezekiel and Daniel along with writings in the New (Second) Testament in books like Revelation. During our study we will explore the genre of Apocalyptic literature and survey various Apocalyptic writings of the Bible.
