In the spring of 2006 several members of our congregation completed a study of the prophetic books of Ezekiel, Daniel and Revelation, using video lessons taught by Brother Jim McGuiggan. A real and dedicated Bible scholar, Brother McGuiggan spoke with earnestness and kindness, reviewing and repeating often enough for us to grasp the thrust of these great prophecies. Since one of our members arranges for articles for a couple of Gospel Tidings issues each year, some of us decided to take advantage of that option and write articles trying to present the gist of what we had learned about the book of Revelation. Brother Bill Adcox, editor of Gospel Tidings, agreed to our plan, and the articles were published in the December 2006 issue. These are companion articles to our writings on Ezekiel in the December 2004 issue of Gospel Tidings, accessible from our home page.
As a further study help, we’ve also included a “Revelation Study Outline,” compiled almost entirely from material by Jim McGuiggan as contained in his video lessons on Revelation, his commentary on Revelation, and articles on his web site.
Brother McGuiggan, a native of Northern Ireland who studied and taught at Sunset School of Preaching in Lubbock, Texas, is a longtime student of the prophetic books, having taught video lessons on Daniel and Revelation, logically following the lessons on Ezekiel. In addition, he has written commentaries on Ezekiel, Daniel, Revelation, Isaiah, 1 Corinthians and Romans, plus a number of other books, including The Kingdom of God and Planet Earth. The books and video lessons are available through Gospel Tidings bookstore. To get a feel for the man and his writings, you need only to visit his interesting and informative web site: jimmcguiggan.com.
