about

Jesus' parting words to his followers was for them to ""Go therefore and make disciples of all nations"" (Matt 28:19). This being the case, shouldn't we be concerned with gaining a full understanding of discipleship from the entire New Testament corpus? Many scholars recognize that the theme of discipleship is found throughout the New Testament, even in Revelation, with all of its symbolism and bizarre imagery. But how does it do this? The focus of this study, through the use of content analysis methodology, is to demonstrate that the theme of discipleship is not only found in the Apocalypse, but is also exceedingly relevant for Christians today. In many parts of the world Jesus' disciples are facing opposition and persecution for their testimony to Jesus Christ. It would do Christians well to read the book of Revelation once again. As they read it this time through the eyes of the oppressed, the content of the book will prove extremely valuable to aid disciples of Jesus in their efforts to ""follow the Lamb wherever he goes"" (Rev 14:4), no matter what the cost.""Marriner offers a thoughtful, well-researched study of an important and neglected theme in the book of Revelation and illuminates what it means for believers to 'follow the Lamb wherever he goes.' I warmly recommend this book."" --Brian J. Tabb, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Bethlehem College & Seminary""Following the Lamb brings solid biblical scholarship to bear on a much-neglected topic: discipleship in the book of Revelation. Marriner's excellent work uses the Gospel of John to shed light on how Revelation speaks to what it meant (and means) to follow Jesus. Those interested in how Christian disciples should live in a demanding world will benefit greatly from Marriner's biblically-reliable, comprehensive, and insightful contribution. --J.
