The Brick Testament looks at the Book of Revelations

Rev. Brendan Powell Smith of the popular Brick Testament site takes on The Apocalypse of John, or commonly known as The Book of Revelations. Rev. Smith recreates biblical scenes in Lego, putting a visual twist on familiar bible passages.

This time, Smith has tackled the early chapters of John's visions and--what many believe--our world's near future.

The passages are filled with allegory, as huge bizarre animals populate the throne room of God and, if depicted in a non-Biblical setting, would suggest the influence of mind-altering chemicals.

Smith has cleverly depicted God giving his Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse the authority to slaughter one-quarter of the Earth's population, which if it occurred in April 2009, would total 1.7 billion people, all of them killed due to war, famine, and plague.
