It’s been almost 2,000 years since the apostle John was instructed by Jesus to write letters to the seven churches mentioned in the book of Revelation. These timeless letters reveal a message of God’s love through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus, identify and provide correction for problems in the church, and offer hope and encouragement for the future.
In this 7-part DVD presentation, you’ll travel to what remains of the ancient sites of the churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. Join host and president of Cornerstone University Joe Stowell as he takes a closer look into the struggles of the New Testament churches that are just as apparent in churches today.
The Seven Churches of Revelation is a perfect resource to help individuals or small groups gain a new perspective on the book of Revelation. Discover how you can find courage to face challenges with the confidence of knowing that in the end, Jesus wins!
