Decoding Revelation: Making Sense of the Last Book of the Bible

The Book of Revelation is a challenge to understand.  This is why there are many divergences and disagreements about its interpretation. A major reason for this is because the book is written in symbolic language, a coded style. This presentation will provide an interpretive key to Revelation’s symbolism, resulting in greater understanding and meaning for the reader. This “decoding” will enable you to see Christ, His Church, and history (past, present, and future) in a whole new light.


August 6-7, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Rev. Dr. David Peter

Dr. Peter currently serves as chairman of the department of practical theology. A year ago, he led the Concordia Seminary St. Louis Lay Bible Institute on Theology through the book of Revelation and it was very well received (hence this workshop!). He also is working on a book about mid-sized congregations. Those who know him recognize that he brings a solid theological understanding of the church to the topic as well as an openness to how we live out our Lutheran ecclesiology in the world today.


Peter teaches homiletics, pastoral ministry, pastoral leadership, parish administration, New Testament exegesis and Old Testament survey at the pre-seminary, Master of Divinity, distance certification and doctoral levels. Before joining the Seminary, Peter served as a visiting instructor of theology at Concordia University, Nebraska, Seward, from 1987 to 1988. He also served as a pastor at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Peoria, Ill., from 1995 to 1998.
