Abstract

The Book of Revelation - current interests in the theological debate. This aricle argues that the insights of academic research conducted within the framework of the believing community are not limited exclusively to an academic debate, but have implicaions for the proclamation of the church. The article illustrates this by surveying the scholarly Contributions of Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza and Fredeick J Murphy with regard to current popular interests in the Book of Revelaion. It addresses issues such as genre, the interrelaionship between history and eschatology, and authorship. The aricle aims to create an awareness of moralistic preaching and the misuse of Scripture.
