Dr. Creasy has noted on many occasions that the Bible—in its final, finished form—is a unified literary work that is linear in structure. Its main character is God, its conflict is sin, and its theme is redemption. Viewing the Bible from this perspective, the curtain rises on our story in Genesis 1, and it falls in Revelation 22. From a literary perspective, Revelation is the final chapter in a sprawling 2,000 page, 66-chapter story. As the conflict of sin enters the world in Genesis 3, so is it finally and definitively resolved in Revelation 20. Then, in Revelation 21 and 22 our linear narrative bends back around on itself and we have a new beginning: We are back in the Garden of Eden—the New Jerusalem—where there is “no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
In the New Jerusalem “God’s dwelling place is among people, and he will dwell with them.” In the New Jerusalem God will walk with his people in the cool of the day, just as he did with Adam and Eve at the start in the Garden of Eden. In Revelation 21-22 we come full circle. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as together we bring down the curtain on the story of fallen humanity and celebrate a new beginning, redeemed by God!
