Symbolism: Apocalyptic Language of the Bible
Welcome to Biblos Foundation’s New Online eCourse
The word “apocalypse” in Greek (apokalypsis) means “a revealing, an uncovering, or an unveiling.” This eCourse will look in depth at specific chapters in two apocalyptic books of the Bible: Daniel and Revelation. We will ask: Why does the author use this particular literary style? Do these writings envision the end of the world as we know it? If not, then what do they envision? Why use symbolic language if the goal is to unveil or reveal? We will explore these symbolic narratives and seek to gain an inspired understanding of their relevance for us today.
