Many Christians today simply avoid the book of Revelation because they find it too confusing. How does it fit into the overall story of Scripture or matter for our lives? One way to see Revelation’s significance is to note its imagery of exile—of plagues and pilgrimage. At its heart, Revelation presents visions of a journey: the martyr exodus into heaven and the exodus from the old city to the new. Peter Leithart will walk us through this vision to help us understand the Bible better and grasp God’s plan for his pilgrim people today.
