An Oratorio for Zion
Zion. The Holy City. The New Jerusalem. Heaven.
Does John’s language regarding The New Jerusalem in his Revelation describe a literal place, the home of the redeemed,... More > or is it figurative for something else, a spiritual entity which is quite incapable of being seen with mortal eye?
The author compares John’s apocalyptic vision of the New Jerusalem, with similar Old Testament passages regarding Zion, especially in Isaiah and The Song of Solomon. Sometimes this entity is metaphorically described as a city, sometimes as a bride or even a garden.
This book examines the relationship between Zion and Christ, the bride and the bridegroom, and the garden and gardener. Jordan discovered that all the prophecy, however, is primarily about Jesus Christ. And that ultimately Christ died to save sinners.
“Surely, it is with ‘the voice of melody’ that his servants declare the good news unto all people.”< Less
