1. By its use of "Then," Revelation 20:1 assumes we remember the context of of what is happening in this incredible vision. Take a moment to remind yourself: what is going on? 2. Think back:where in Revelation have we seen "the bottomless pit" (20:1)? What is being described in Revelation 20:1-3? 4.Revelation 20:2 tells us that the dragon was bound "for a thousand years" Revelation 20:3 reveals, "after that he must be released for a little while". What should we make of these statements? Carefully read Revelation 20:4-6. What is this "first resurrection"? 6. In what way will these "souls" reign with Christ for a thousand years? 7. Revelation 20:7-10 describes a great and tettible scene. What is going on? How does it fit into the rest of the vision John is experiencing? 8. Carefully contrast: how is the fate of the dragon different from Revelation 20:1-3 to Revelation 20:7-10? How would you convey the message of Revelation 20:11 in your own words? Having reached the end of Revelation 20, what is being communicated? What is the overall message? How does that overall message apply to us today?
