2020 Feels Like An Apocalypse Because It Is One

There is no doubt that 2020 has been an unusual year in many respects – but how does a time like this one connect to the Christian understanding of apocalypse? Religion scholar, Giovanni Bazzana, suggests that “it’s important to remember that apocalypse means revelation; it’s the moment that reveals something about one individual’s life or about society in general… I think this is really a moment of big revelations, not revelations in terms of visions or prophecies, but revelations in the sense of seeing the truth of things.”
