The 'city of God'
5 July -7 July, 2017
The apostle John’s vision of the New Jerusalem in Revelation draws on imagery that goes back to the opening chapters of Genesis, underlining that the entire biblical metanarrative has a sustained interest in the concept of God dwelling with humanity on the earth. From Genesis to Revelation, Jerusalem/Mount Zion (and its antithesis, Babel/Babylon) is significant for the outworking of God's redemptive plan. The study group offers an opportunity to explore how the concept of the 'city of God' is a central theme in Scripture.
