Preaching Outline of Revelation

This August I’ll embark on the most ambitious sermon series I’ve ever preached: the book of Revelation. Here’s the outline I plan to follow. Throughout the series, I plan to rely heavily on the work of G.K. Beale and Joel Beeke. This outline borrows from Beeke’s own preaching plan.
