The Bible contains many types of writings, including history, prophecy, psalms, gospels, and epistles. One of the most fascinating for many people is apocalyptic literature, especially the Book of Revelation. My own interest in Revelation started during my seminary days when I focused on the writings of John---the Gospel of John, the three Epistles of John, and the Book of Revelation. My Ph.D. major was New Testament Greek, and I translated each of these books from Greek into English. Following graduation I taught courses, wrote Sunday School lessons, and preached sermons on Revelation in the churches I served.            I also taught college and seminary level courses on campus and off campus in extension classes. Most of the classes were for new ministers. From 1992-2005 I taught “How the Bible Came to Be” and “New Testament Greek” for new ministers each summer in the Program of Alternate Studies sponsored by Memphis Theological Seminary. Many of these students asked questions about the purpose of Revelation and how it came to be.                               

Almost all books on Revelation recognize that suffering and persecution of Christian believers is in the background of this last book of the Bible. My fifty year pastoral ministry of counseling involved me in the suffering of my church family. In seeking guidance, I found insights from reading the world’s great psychiatrists like Carl Jung and Viktor Frankl.  Their creative imagery has been used to help interpret John’s visionary apocalyptic images. Jung’s use of archetypes, collective unconsciousness, personal consciousness, and the “shadow” side of human existence were especially helpful in understanding suffering.
