Revelation 2:18-29

  1. In what ways is the description of Christ in verse 18 relevant to what follows? In what character is he revealed hear? How should awareness of these truths affect our own behavior?
  2. The religious compromise and moral laxity that were creeping into the churches seem to have proceeded further in the case of Thyatira, and have become a doctrine and almost a sect. What responsibility had the church as a whole towards the presence of such evil in its midst? What advice is given to the individual members who do not hold to this teaching?

Note. Verse20. ‘That woman Jezebel’: so called because of her moral likeness to Jezebel of old. Cf. 1 Kgs. 21: 25, 26; 2 Kgs. 9:22, 30.
