Naked Bible 373: Revelation 7 Part 2
This episode continues our discussion of Revelation 7 and the 144,000. The discussion includes Revelation 14, a second passage referencing the 144,000. This latter passage adds an interesting descriptive detail, one that leads some scholars to wonder if the 144,000 have some relationship to the Book of the Watchers (1 Enoch), a work that elaborates […]
Naked Bible 372: Revelation 7 Part 1
Revelation 7 is the first of two passages in the book that refer to the 144,000. The passage bristles with questions. Who are these individuals, 12,000 from 12 tribes of Israel?

Bringing the Old Testament perspective!
Every time I used to read my Bible I noticed weird passages like genesis chapter 6. Or random narrations added into the passage that implies a future edit. Michael S.
