Spoken too Soon
I will write short notes soon but come Thursday I will speak as the oracles of God, by His grace. In fact, I look forward to the end of the Conference so that I could continue to prepare my lectures on the Prophets. I had just done Daniel over 3 weeks and now it will be the post exilic prophets, most likely Zechariah. The prophet Zechariah is up there with Daniel in terms of its influence in the book of Revelation. Prophets Ezekiel, Daniel and Zechariah loom large in John's mind when he composed Revelation. Isaiah slightly less so and the Psalms as well. John has alluded to about 30 of the 39 OT books in Revelation. If one wants to major or know Revelation in any way, there is no short cut but to learn the Scriptures, the Christians Old Testament especially the prophets.
