Understanding the Core of Revelation: Revelation Video Series with Phil Vischer

When asked what was the most rewarding part of creating the final volume of Buck Denver Asks … What’s in the Bible?, creator Phil Vischer explained that it was finally addressing the book of Revelation, both in the series and in his own life.

“I admittedly had kind of avoided Revelation for most of my life,” he said.

Vischer’s latest DVD, God’s Kingdom Comes [General Epistles and Revelation] released in March.

“People get so obsessed with interpreting symbols and trying to apply them to current events,” he said. “Part of me didn’t even want to touch the book.”

Revelation is the last book of the Bible and is apocalyptic writing, full of symbols. While scholars can agree on some interpretations of those symbols, many aren’t as clear – and are often subject to pop culture interpretations. This can lead to speculation, about the past, present and future. So many shy away from it, but Vischer addresses it in a way that equips kids to understand what we know for sure, and to accept what we don’t.

“Kids can’t build their faith on speculation, they need to build their faith on understanding,” Vischer said. “What do we know for sure? Let’s give kids that understanding.”

See how Phil Vischer addresses Revelation in the final episode of Buck Denver Asks … What’s in the Bible? “God’s Kingdom Comes!”

Not just for reading it, but for reading it out loud (which I THINK means reading it to/with others?) and taking it to heart. You can read it like a comic strip with a quick glance ,a "huh.", and carry on with your life, or you can read it like it's real and you want to make sure you're prepared. I think that's where the blessing comes in :)

our understanding is not the same as God's understanding!

Does anyone realize there is a special blessing just for reading the book of revelation.
