Palm Sunday: (Revelation) The Faithful in Babylon: The Subversive King(dom)
John the apostle fills this last book of the cannon with mysterious imagery. The purpose of symbols is not to confuse but to reveal. Symbols illuminate rather than obscure. Revelation ends in a garden-city with the tree of life. However to get to peacetime, war must ensue. It centers and revolves around the finished work of Christ. On Palm Sunday we celebrate the King ascending upon Jerusalem and will one more time, to bring restoration and renewal, the New Jerusalem and a new creation.
