Will all be saved? A discussion on the theme of universal deliverance in the song in Revelation 15
Keywords:Universalism, Salvation, Moses, Revelation, Old Testament,
AbstractThe so-called “Song of Moses” in Revelation 15 is a song of which its Old Testament background is highly debated in modern scholarship. There is, however, no disagreement on the fact that the song does contain lots of Old Testament themes. This paper aims to discuss one of these themes that appear to be present in the song namely the theme of universal deliverance. The paper discusses the different points of view in modern scholarship on the theme and attempts to determine which view carries most weight; taking into account the possible Old Testament texts alluded to in the song.
