  • REVELATION 1:4-8, 18
  • How is Jesus described in this passage?
  • How are Christians described in this passage?


  • REVELATION 1:12-13“One of Revelation’s most important declarations is that Jesus appears among the lamp stands (1:12; 2:1), which represent the seven churches (1:20) […] the church is pictured as having a mission, to be the bearer of God’s light to the nations (cf. Matt. 5:14-16).  The church is not abandoned to carry out this mission alone; Christ walks among the lamp stands.” [1]
  • What may be some steps I can confidently take knowing that Christ has not abandoned the church to carry out the daunting mission alone?
