Ernst Kasemann

An apocalyptic reduced to a mood of world ruin and promoting desperate anxiety has nothing to do with the gospel. There, according to the revelation of John, the most apocalyptic book of the Bible, Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning in the end, in the rule of God come near is the kingdom where the beast from the abyss is conquered, where God himself wipe away his servant’s tears and where those set free will sing the praise the Lamb, who was slain for them.
