DVD-SBR-01 A Survey of the Book of Revelation
(See promotional video below)
• 4 DVDs containing over eleven hours of instruction.
(Which is much better than eleven DVDs containing four hours of instruction!)
• Each DVD contains six lectures each of around thirty minutes each.
(I can't think of anything funny to say about this. Sorry.)
• Perfect for small group Bible studies or a Sunday school program.
(Large groups, though, may become restive and snort from time-to-time.)
• A free downloadable syllabus for note-taking is available on this website. It may be copied for students.
(In fact, it can be copied for aluminum storm door salesmen who refuse to participate.)
Revelation is a difficult book that has confounded the best minds of the church and been abused by the most naive populists throughout Christian history. It is so difficult that even John himself was perplexed, as we see in Revelation 17:6-7.
In Revelation we meet bizarre creatures such as fire-breathing horses with locust tails, a seven-headed beast, a woman standing on the moon, and more. What does al of it mean? How can we understand Revelation’s dramatic narrative? When did John expect these things to transpire?
In these twenty-four careful, down-to-earth lectures is provided a basic introduction to and survey of the entire Book of Revelation. The viewer will receive important interpretive tools for understanding the dramatic flow and bewildering imagery of Revelation. And with those tools in hand we will work our way through the book from beginning to end — in short, clear, insightful, and compeling lectures.

The teachings are excellent and having the syllabus to fill out and take notes with help reinforce the information. The quality of the filming is good. My only suggestion would be if you're film the series, make it more casual feeling. That will communicate better to home-group settings.

I am 85 years old and feel like Simeon. I have waited all these years for an interpretation of Revelation, but to no avail. Now, through your in depth study, I feel I have the truth at last. Now, as I read Matthew and other books of the Bible, it all becomes clear, as if a fog has been lifted. I can't imagine how much study has gone into this, but I am eternally grateful to you.
The DVDs are so helpful, as I don't think I could ever read the commentary when it becomes available or understand the technical details. But I know that there are many a scholar awaiting its release with much anticipation.
I praise the Lord for His gifts to men, and the revealing of His Truth to His children.

Excellent series the kind of which I have been looking for a long time. It doesn't shy away from any hard-to-understand passages and gives convincing arguments and scriptual references. Gentry is well organized, and lays it out in compelling fashion for the hardest hard-core skeptic of the Preterist perspective. No impressive effects or sumptuous venues, but none needed. A scholarly backdrop is all that is needed! I will add that the syllabus is an excellent addendum as well. I am thoroughly enjoying it, and will ultimately refer to it often!

Great Resource to put many of the eschatological errors of our culture to silence.

TRULY APPRECIATE PREPARATION AND KNOWLEDGE MR. GENTRY HAS ON THE BOOK OF REVELATION'S INTERPRETATION AND THE WAY IN WHICH HE SHARES IT, NOT LECTURING OR IMPOSING HIS VIEW, BUT ALLOWING THE VIEWER TO TAKE IT IN AND DIGEST IT.

Gentry's thorough outline dymistifyes Revelation. After listening to it, you will have a solid understanding of the meanings behind the symbols and there glorious fulfillment.

The "Survey of the book of Revelation" DVDs are great!

I like your approach to the REVELATION. It is a comfort to know that Jesus Christ can come at any time to judge. We don't have to look for another event prior to his coming. I appreciate your honesty that you don't know the exact meaning of every detail of every symbol in the book.

Your DVD lesson series on Revelation was a real eye-opener. Excellent. I can't believe I so thoroughly missed what was right in front of me for darn near close to 33 years!!!

In my opinion the value of the content in this DVD series far exceeds the purchase price. In this series Dr Gentry provides a chapter by chapter review with much of the text of Revelation being covered verse by verse. You will notice that he goes to great length to align himself with the hermeneutic of "scripture interprets scripture" rather than the newspaper exegetical approach of many so called experts of today. In particular his analysis of the two witnesses in Rev 11 (which is one of the more difficult passages) was VERY good. His analysis of the beast in Rev 13, mark of the beast in Rev 13, and the harlot of Rev 17 were spot-on and convincing. Personally, I found his analysis of the New Jerusalem revelatory (non pun intended). The outline notes provided are helpful but for my purposes I preferred to pretend I was in a classroom and took my own notes using my laptop which allowed me to put more info in than what was covered in the outline provided. Sometimes I had to put "Ken" on pause or even rewind him a bit to make sure that I got all the content into my notes.
