Not Kirk Cameron’s Apocalypse


A more robust and colorful look at the end times described in John’s Revelation.  Facilitated by Lynn R. Huber.

The recording of this live session will be available as quickly as possible following the class.



Earthquakes. Falling stars. A blood red moon. The final judgment. The last days. These are just some of the things people associate with Revelation, the book that closes the Christian Bible. Because Revelation claims to disclose “things that must happen soon,” many Christians read it as a catalog of predictions or a blueprint for the “last days.” As result, some Christians use the book’s images and proclamations to control, dominate, instill fear, and even make a profit.
In this one-night class, Dr. Lynn R. Huber will define what an “apocalypse” is and why the author of Revelation might have chosen this language found in the last book of the Christian Bible. 
Topics We’ll Cover:
  • Defining what an “apocalypse” is 
  • Who wrote Revelation & why the use of apocalyptic imagery 
  • The gendered imagery used in Revelation
  • How have people read Revelation throughout history

Your Instructor:
Lynn R. Huber is the Maude Sharpe Powell Professor of Religious Studies at Elon University in Elon, NC. At Elon, Huber teaches courses on biblical texts and traditions, including classes that focus on gender, sex, and family and on Satan and other supernatural figures. Dr. Huber also teaches Elon students studying abroad in Italy and Turkey.
Originally from Portland, OR, Huber attended Northwest Nazarene College in Nampa, ID, even though she feared that Jesus would return during her first year as a student. Since the Rapture didn’t happen in 1988, she completed a BA in Philosophy before going to Emory University in Atlanta, GA, where Huber earned both M.Div. and a Ph.D.. Her first two books, “Like a Bride Adorned”: Reading Metaphor in John’s Apocalypse (2007) and Thinking and Seeing with Women in Revelation (2013), explore Revelation’s use of feminine imagery and ways the book invites interpreters to see along with these images. Other publications explore the construction of masculinity in Revelation and LGBT+ and queer interpretations of the book. Among her forthcoming publications are a feminist commentary on Revelation for the Liturgical Press and introductions to Revelation for the HarperCollins Study Bible and the Westminster/ John Knox Student Study Bible.
