oa Conspectus : The Journal of the South African Theological Seminary - The victory song of Moses in Christological perspective within the Apocalypse of John

 

Abstract

Christians typically seek to approach life from a biblical perspective. Within this biblical perspective, an apocalyptic view on life encourages them to experience the reality of a relationship with God in adverse conditions. With this in mind, this article focused on the biblical apocalyptic tradition found in Exodus chapter 15, later interpreted christologically in the Apocalypse of John chapter 15; the 'victory song of Moses', and the 'victory song of Moses and the Lamb'. Literature on the dialogue between these two songs was researched, and the implications for suffering Christians were explored. Finally, this article demonstrated how Christians may be aware of the 'secular' onslaught on this 'sacred' perspective.
