About the event

The Book of Revelation is a written account of the extraordinary vision experienced by the apostle John the Beloved while exiled by the Romans on the small Aegean island of Patmos. Originally titled the Apocalypses of Jesus Christ, it derives its name from the Greek word Apokalupsis, which means an ‘uncovering or ‘revealing’. Containing highly symbolic images and events that are alternatively sublime and horrific, it has defied ready interpretation and led to much speculation about its true meaning. These refer either to the historical past, the continuous present or the future.

Set on a hillside about the ancient city of Ephesus in 97 AD, the aged apostle’s last refuge, Vision at Patmos has John welcoming visitors from the seven communities of the faithful in Asia Minor (western Turkey). In answering their questions he shares details from his time with Jesus, his life on Patmos and scenes from his vision. In doing so John he provides insights into its profound meaning, one that is as applicable to us today as it was to those living some two thousand years ago.

As revealed by John, the Apokalupsis is an account of both the sublime and challenging experiences we encounter on our journey from material to spiritual consciousness influenced by the universal Christ spirit. Given lived expression through ‘the fruits of the spirit’, it is a journey of transformation in our timeless quest for reunification with the Divine.

Written by actor and playwright Mark Finnan following his visit to the ‘holy’ island of Patmos and

John’s last refuge in the hills above ancient Ephesus, Vision at Patmos runs for about 50 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A.
