This blog is a teaching ministry of the Disciples Global Network and designed to provide detailed studies on the books of Revelation and Daniel. The goal is to understand passages from both books in their literary and historical contexts. The theological center of the Bible is Jesus - His Death and Resurrection. The promises of God and His "mysteries" find their fulfillment in him.

The Apostle Paul declared that the "forms of this age" are in the process of "passing away" due to the death of Jesus, his resurrection, and his exaltation to reign at the right hand of God. All things have become new; nothing can ever be the same. This includes the identity of the people of God. Even now, the “age to come" has commenced and is making inroads wherever the gospel of the kingdom is proclaimed. The promised new creation began in the resurrection of Jesus, the "firstborn of the dead."

The stress in on a contextual approach to the books of Daniel and Revelation. Before reading outside factors and theories into a passage, it must first read in its own literary context. Second, the book of Revelation employs the Old Testament more than any other New Testament document, and always using texts from the Greek Septuagint translation. Revelation uses several key passages from Daniel repeatedly; for example, Daniel 7:21 ("I kep looking when this horn made war with the saints and prevailed against them" - [Revelation 11:7, 12:17, 13:7]).
