at least 200 words by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of the assigned Module: Week. This
assignment does not require citations, but the student must cite sources if any are used or quoted.
Any sources cited must have been published within the last five years. Acceptable sources
include the Bible, textbooks, scholarly articles, and online sources approved by your instructor.
Here is my outline, thesis, bibliography so far. I am really struggling with my thesis statement for some reason because it is hard to find a different view of this passage, no matter how many scholars I read. I am also having a difficult time making it “flow.” I feel this is a part I will be refining in the next few weeks for sure.
I am also open to hearing any other sources of scholars/theologians you guys would trust. I have the “big three” Revelation scholars already with Aune, Beale, and Bacukham but I would love to read more. Again, I would love to hear any suggestions regarding anything that could improve my paper as I am working hard on this and hoping it turns out well. I know I have a lot in my outline but I am sure some of that will get trimmed down during the writing stage.
Thanks, and God Bless
