CZSS “The Woman in the Wilderness: A Reassessment of the Adventist Interpretation of Revelation 12”

Kevin Burrell will present. 

Adventism’s interpretation of the Woman of Revelation 12 envisions a linear historical connection from the first century church to the Adventist movement as the final Remnant. I argue that this hermeneutic is a theological construction which serves to legitimize Adventism’s self-identification as the Woman’s end-time offspring. The implications of this line of argument are significant for Adventist identity, mission, eschatology, and hermeneutics more generally. 

Dr. Burrell is an Associate Professor at Wilfrid Laurier University in the departments of Religion and Culture and Archaeology and Heritage Studies. Prior to joining Laurier in 2022, Kevin taught biblical studies and languages at Burman University, Alberta, Canada. Kevin’s research focuses on ethnicity and identity in the Hebrew Bible, historical legacies of the Bible, the Book of Revelation, as well as Adventist eschatology and prophetic hermeneutics. 

We meet from 9:30 – 10:45 Pacific Time.
