You may want to convert this chart to an overhead transparency, or a PowerPoint graphic.
Begin using the chart with blank cells, and fill in the information as you present it in the lessons each week.
If you are not able to project the chart, you may print it each week, adding the new information that will be presented in the lesson.

These pages may be used as "homework" sheets help members study the Bible text.
Pages 1 & 2 are also suitable for overhead or PowerPoint in the first lesson (Introduction).
At the end of the first lesson, hand out pages 3 & 4 for the members to study for the next week's lesson on Ephesus.  Hand out each study sheet in preparation for the lesson of the following week..

Background:
The Concordia Self-Study Bible offers excellent background information to the book of Revelation and notes on each of the verses of the text.

ASL Video:
Deaf Missions has produced an excellent ASL translation of Revelation on VHS video.  If you can project the image on a screen and pause (freeze frame) the presentation on specific verses and key words, this is an effective teaching tool, sparing the need to stop and wait for people to read the text.
