The intriguing night when Fidel Castro explored the Book of Revelation

The Faith

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro has died this November 25, at age 90. Fidel Castro was the last survivor of the Cold War, and probably one of the most important political personalities of the 20th century.

He started his political career on January 1, 1959 after overthrowing the Batista regime. His influence on the Caribbean island never disappeared, not even when a disease removed him from the government in 2006.

With the title “The night I taught the Apocalypse to Fidel Castro,” evangelical theologian Juan Stam recounts an unusual encounter that happened in 2002 in Cuba between a group of Protestant pastors and Fidel Castro.

The night John Stam taught Fidel Castro about the book of Revelation Juan Stam

It was October of 2002 and I found myself in Havana participating in a theological conference on the Protestant Reformation. One night, after the day’s session had concluded, our leader asked us all to sit down because he had an announcement to make. Fidel Castro had invited us for an interview that same night, from eleven o´clock until two in the morning.

We entered the room, greeted Fidel, and took pictures. The room was quite long but very narrow and I ended up sitting at the far end.
