Reading Revelation in a Society Seeking Harmony
Despite the fact that Revelation is not a book intended for the promotion of a harmonious society, this book and its effect in history provide issues to ponder for the societal quest for harmony. The discussion will start with the politico-critical nature of the warfare imageries in Revelation. This political critique will then be understood in the light of the use of the book of Daniel in the book of Revelation, the theme of Slaughtered Lamb as the Lion of Judah in Revelation, the rhetorical situation of Revelation, and the comparison between the warfare in Ephesians and that in Revelation. The conclusion will be the (indirect) contribution of the book of Revelation to the construction of societal harmony.
