January Series
Making Sense of the Book of Revelation
James E. Davison

Revelation! For many, the very name of this last book in the New Testament conjures up weird images of violence and bizarre predictions about historical events. For others, it is an exciting prophecy of events we see happening before our very eyes. In this series, we will seek to unlock John’s purpose in writing and make sense of the images and events he portrays. Our aim will be to grasp how the central message of this book, written to Christians in the first century, is extremely valuable for us in the twenty-first century!

January 20 - Unmasking Fake Truth and Power
January 27 - So…What Does Revelation Mean for Us?

Rev. Dr. James E. Davison (Jim) served for 17 years here at Westminster Presbyterian Church as Minister of Education. In 2001, he moved to Pittsburgh Theological Seminary as Director of Continuing Education, where he also taught New Testament Greek, until he retired in 2013. Earlier, Jim taught religion and philosophy at Sterling College in Kansas. He is a graduate of Westminster College, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, the Free University of Amsterdam, and the University of Iowa. Jim has written a number of books and articles for pastors and laypersons, including The Year of the Bible, which he developed here at Westminster and which has now been used by many congregations in our denomination and beyond. Jim says that he and his wife, Reeny, have three sons and six of “the greatest grandchildren in the world – of course!”
