Theology 101: Without Genesis 1-3 and Revelation 20-22, it’s hard to make sense of any of this.

- Dr. Michael J. Svigel

I agree. It's hard to make sense of any of this without the context of Genesis, and the Revelation to John. There are so many other "church" narratives competing for our attention. Some worthy, others will be shaken.

Genesis lays the foundation for the kingdom. The Revelation to John describes the culmination of that kingdom.

The Maranatha cry will endure.

"Your kingdom come..."
