Moving on to the church in Thyatira, Dr. Bramson looks to 1 Kings 16 to explain the meaning of the woman Jezebel in Revelation 2:20. What other connection is there between Jezebel and the city of Thyatira? Next, Dr. Bramson links this church with the fourth kingdom parable in Matthew 13 where leaven is hidden in bread dough. What does leaven represent in Scripture? What is this parable teaching? Finally, Dr. Bramson examines the influence of Semiramis in the fourth century church and her continued influence in that church today.
You may find Dr. Bramson’s book, Revelation Decoded: The Easiest Book in the Bible, to be a valuable tool as you listen to the Revelation series. Revelation Decoded is available here.
