Ulfgard, Feast and Future

Ulfgard, Håkan. Feast and Future: Revelation 7:9-17 and the Feast of Tabernacles. Coniectanea Biblica, New Testament Series, 22. Stockholm: Almqvist & Wiksell International, 1989. viii + 186 pp.

The author is currently assoc. professor at Linköping University, Sweden (see more in Swedish).

The author’s conclusion is that “the connection with the Feast of Tabernacles is not the primary theme in Rev 7:9-17, but that it is dependent on the Exodus pattern. The reference to God’s protection of Israel during the wandering in the wilderness is a most suitable expression of Rev’s characteristic dual concept of Christian existence in the age of salvation inaugurated by Christ” (from the author’s abstract).
