""Revelation is sooo complicated "" Wait a minute If a Jewish fisherman understood what his Rabbi showed him, then it shouldn't be hard for us, either. We just need his tools. Fortunately, God left them for us in the same place John found them: the Bible. This Primer uses the rest of the Bible to explain Revelation in plain language. We've banned the big words professors use. We've thrown out their multi-part sentences, and we don't waste time explaining why we disagree with somebody. Instead, we try to let the text speak for itself. When you read this Primer, you'll see that it was written for you with great respect for God's word. By the way, Revelation isn't that complicated. After all, it's ""the revealing of Jesus Christ."" ""Ted Noel's commentary on Revelation is an easy read but will challenge your preconceived ideas. The interpretive method of letting 'the text interpret the text' yields some very rich insights. Most readers will be amazed at how much the Hebrew Scripture is needed to unlock the mysteries of Revelation. Somehow the book of Revelation doesn't seem so daunting when Dr. Noel explains it. Many tend to avoid the book of Revelation, but with this book as your guide the book will come alive. While it's not required to agree with every conclusion, you must wrestle with this book. I hope that everyone will read it and then re-read it, as the message of this book needs to sink into our minds. The believing community of faith is indebted to Ted Noel for making the book of Revelation clear. I encourage the reader to give this book a chance to mess with your eschatology."" --Brent Emery Rabbi of Congregation Beit Tefillah Messianic Synagogue ""This Primer offers an innovative introduction to Revelation that engages the reader and puts Jesus front and center. It uses Jewish history, tradition, and linguistic backgrounds to take the mystery out of the book."" --Ted Ridore Ph.D, Cornerstone Christian University Orlando, Florida Ted Noel is director of adult studies at Sabbath Grace Fellowship in Apopka, Florida.
