An in-depth study of the history and culture setting behind the book of Revelation and the cruel leaders leading up to the apostle John's banishment to the isle of Patmos. Patmos, during John's time, was the place where prisoners were sent live out their last days. Yet today, Patmos is a beautiful Greek island resort in the Aegean Sea, just off the coast of Turkey. It is here on the island that John will receive the vision to write while on the Lord's day. John will be told to write those things that Daniel was commanded to close up and seal until the time of the end.
