The Dragon Was Thrown Down
Passage: Revelation 11:19–12:17
Chapter 12 of Revelation begins the second major division of the book, in which Christ's battle with the Dragon is depicted. The cosmic drama of redemption is portrayed in the style of mythology, with vivid characters and an epic drama unfolding in the stars. Yet these grand images reveal tangible and true realities concerning the life of the Church in this broken world, awaiting the return of Christ.
