A Message from an Angel

In the 14th chapter of the book of Revelation, the apostle John, while exiled on the island of Patmos, sees a vision of a Lamb on Mount Zion.

A Study of Biblical Types

One of the most fascinating areas of Bible study is that of typology-the study of Scripture "types." Few Christians have made any sort of in-depth investigation of biblical types.
