“Reading Revelation through genuine Jewish eyes is like watching TV in color for the first time.”
The Book of Revelation is perhaps the most mysterious, difficult-to-understand book in all of the Bible. Scholar after scholar, theologian after theologian have wrestled with all the strange visions, images and messages given by Yochanan (John), one of Yeshua’s apostles. This book has been seen as prophecy, poetry or both. It’s been looked at as a book that reveals the precise time of Messiah’s return to Earth and it’s also been understood to be talking solely about the historical events of the day, the last part of the first century C.E. Because of the difficulty in getting an accurate understanding of what this critical book is all about, most people have shied away from reading it. Until now! Gavrel Lumbroso has come to the rescue. As a Messianic Jewish rabbi, who has written and taught extensively on the Jewish background of the Faith in Yeshua (Jesus), we have hope. By imagining what was in Yochahan’s mind as he interacted with the words of the Master, Messiah Yeshua, Rabbi Lumbroso has opened up the Book of the Revelation for perhaps the first time since the words were spoken to Yochanan.
With the varying opinions about the book of Revelation, it’s a blessing to finally have a book that provides an understanding from a Messianic point of view.

Skillfully expounded from an historical and traditional Jewish perspective. While there is much that can be unclear or unknown when trying to understand the Book of Revelation, Rabbi Gavri’el presents a plausible explanation to some of its mysteries.
—Rabbi Reuel Dillon, President of UMJA
His mastery of Hebrew brings a new look at this prophetic book. After reading it, you will not find doom and gloom, but joy. It refocuses our perspective on the coming of His Kingdom on earth.
