Who Are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Dr. Jeannie continues her discussion on the Book of Revelation, centering on the Lamb and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. She concludes her explanation of the four creatures by the throne of God and explains how they were interpreted as the four Evangelists in the patristic tradition. Then she continues her study of the Throne Room scene, where we will see the appearance of the Lamb who will open the scroll which is sealed with seven seals. The opening of each of the first four seals brings on the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Who Are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Angels, Elders, Thrones, a Sea of Glass

Dr. Constantinou continues her study of Revelation with Chapter 4, John's visit to heaven, known as the "Throne Room" scene. There we see angels, elders, thrones, a rainbow, a sea of glass, and the lamb. What is the meaning of the imagery and the numbers? Who is on the throne? Why are the four creatures by the throne identified with the evangelists? She also addresses an important theological question: When Christ said that only the Father knows the time of His return, does this mean that the Lord is ignorant of the time of the end?

How Are We to Understand the Last Book of the Bible?

Dr. Constantinou begins her introduction to the Book of Revelation. The book seems to raise as many questions as it answers. Among those she explores are, “Why is it so strange?” “Who was the author?” “When did he write this book?” “What are other theories about authorship and the dating of this book?” not to mention “How do we interpret its symbols?”

Are There “Lost Books” of the Bible?

One of the smallest books of the Bible is the epistle of Jude, the brother of James. Although it is short, it contains an unusual element: a reference to a story from the pseudepigrapha, Jewish non-canonical writings. Just as there were Christian writings that were never accepted as Scripture, apocrypha, the Jews also had books which were popular but were never accepted as Scripture. Some people call them the "other" writings or the "lost books" of the Bible.

What Does John Mean When He Writes About the Antichrist?

Dr. Constantinou discusses the Epistles of John. These Epistles are the only place in the New Testament where the word "antichrist" appears. What prompted John to talk about the antichrist? What was the situation in the Church at that time? The first epistle of John also contains some of the most memorable and beautiful verses in the Bible, which have inspired beautiful patristic statements.

Partakers of Divine Nature?

Dr. Constantinou presents her overview of 2 Peter. There was a controversy over the book when the Church was determining the canon of the New Testament. We will also explore the importance of the most famous verse in 2 Peter: that we will become "partakers of divine nature." We will recap our discussion of the person of Peter and why he was not the rock on which the church was founded, as well as answer a common Catholic defense against the ancient (i.e., Orthodox) interpretation. If there is time, we will also look at what the Fathers said about Peter's remark that the Lord went to Hades and preached to the dead.

What Is the Rock on Which the Church Is Built?

Dr. Constantinou begins her study of the epistles of St. Peter, beginning with an examination of his life and character. She examines the first epistle of Peter with emphasis on its unique passages, beginning with Peter's use of the terms "stone" and "rock" in light of Catholic claims of Peter as the rock on which the Church was established.
