The end of the world...or is it?

This is part one of a conversation on the wild and mysterious, confusing, and encouraging book of Revelation. Pinchas Shir, the Associate Professor of Ancient Cultures is the perfect person to ask about how to untangle folk predictions from a more grounded interpretation of the book of Revelation.

What is apocalyptic literature and how does it change the way we read Revelation? What were the cultural developments that birthed the apocalyptic genre, and is that genre a Greco-Roman or Jewish style of literature? This week we talk about the overall context of Revelation and why pop culture has given us the wrong impression about the end of times.
