Description

‘The revelation (apokalypsis) of Jesus Christ, which God … made known by sending his angel to his servant John’. This is how the book of Revelation opens, and John later describes himself as an ‘elder’ living on the island of Patmos. Though popular with several contemporary evangelical Christians, this curious book was only with difficulty accepted in the New Testament canon.
