      Christ and the Angels in the Book of Revelation

      The Book of Revelation is one of most studied and least understood books in the Bible. During this two-day retreat, Dr. Charles Gieschen will lead participants through the powerful visions of this book, focusing on the various depictions of Christ and angels who play such a prominent role in this visionary prophecy, including the archangel St. Michael. He will also contrast modern cultural thoughts about angels with what is revealed in the Scriptures, and Dr. Steven Cody will teach on the depiction of angels in art.The retreat coincides with the festival of St. Michael and All Angels, which will be observed with Choral Vespers in Kramer Chapel on Sunday, September 29, at 4:00 p.m. Featured in the service will be Bach Cantata #149, “Glad Song of Rejoicing and Victory,” which was written for the celebration of this festival. In addition, the weekend will mark the opening of a new art exhibit on campus titled “With Angels and Archangels.”Presenters*Charles Gieschen* is a New Testament scholar who has taught, written, and lectured on Revelation for 25 years, making him one of the leading Lutheran authorities on this book.
