Adela Yarbro Collins on Scripture and Women in Revelation

carmichael-walling-2015

Professor Adela Yarbro Collins delivered the 29th Carmichael-Walling Lectures at Abilene Christian University on November 12, 2015. Videos of both lectures are available.

The book of Revelation is rich in both Scriptural allusion and symbolic imagery. The first lecture will provide an overview and critical assessment of scholarship on intertextuality in Revelation, highlighting the book’s use of Scripture. The second lecture will consider female symbols in Revelation, particularly focusing on the symbolic woman of Revelation 17 often referred to as “The Whore of Babylon.”

  1. I tried, to no avail, to listen to the end this lecture. What I heard was very interesting; however, it did not hold my attention due to the tone of the speaker. No one wants to be read to; e.g. they are unable to read. It would be more desirable if the author was married to the content of the message.

    I think what she has to be offered would be more receptive in PDF for.

    Perhaps I’ll make another attempt to finish hearing this important message.

    Thanks,
