special training session: 

how to read the book of revelation - with david shead

A dragon with seven heads. A plague of locusts from the Abyss. The mark of the beast. What’s going on?!? This has to be the greatest puzzle of all time, doesn’t it? A fearful mystery only open to a select few?

 

Not at all! You might be surprised to know that Revelation is actually the simplest book in the Bible! After all, it’s a ‘Revelation’, written to reveal and not conceal the truth. And with a couple of simple keys, you can see that for yourself.

 

And when you do, you will discover that, as well as being simple, Revelation is one of the most encouraging and uplifting books in the Bible, written precisely for people like us, who know how hard it can be to live for Jesus in this world.

 

What are those simple keys to reading Revelation? The great news is that you already have them! So come along and find out what they are and how they work – and in the process, unlock one of the most wonderful and inspirational treasures of God’s word.


David Shead is the Minister at Cambridge Park Anglican Church. He loves God’s word, the Bible, and loves seeing the spark of that word come to life in people’s hearts. And while he loves the whole Bible, David has had a particular and long-term interest in the Bible’s last book – the book of Revelation – and will talk about that to anyone, anytime!

 

In his spare time, David enjoys playing music, taking photos, and having his heart broken by the Wests Tigers on an almost weekly basis. David and Bronwyn have been married for 28 years and have 3 adult children.
