"Last night at our Awana Awards Night, I was preaching the Gospel from Revelation 20:11-15. As I started setting up the context, I asked the children: “Does anyone here know who wrote the book of Revelation?” Several hands shot up, but five-year-old Seth simply shouted out his answer: “That’s easy: John MacArthur!”

Turns out Seth’s mother has been reading through MacArthur’s commentary on Revelation

From Expository Thoughts: Matt

I was glad read that Seth's mother was reading John MacArthur's commentary on Revelation.
