If you’re looking for the date that the world will end, you won’t find it in Revelations, according to a biblical scholar who spoke at First Presbyterian Church Tuesday.

Dr. Craig R. Koester, a professor and the Asher O. and Carrie Nasby chair of New Testament at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., said readers of that book of the Bible should read it “contextually and see how it flows in literally and historically.”

“Read Revelations as a whole and see where it leads,” he told a public audience Tuesday evening gathered to hear his talk on “The Open Heaven and the Chaotic Earth: The Book of Revelation and Christian Worship.”

Revelation is considered “provocative and controversial,” he said. If you’re looking for the “end date” of the world, he said, you won’t find it.
