Sample text

Introduction (Rev. 1) The first chapter of Revelation serves as a prologue or introduction to the entire book. Its purpose is to provide a context to help you make sense of the rest of the chapters (also see Chapter 6). Within the first several verses, you discover that ߜ This is an unveiling of the plans of Jesus (from God) (1:1). ߜ The author is John (1:4). ߜ The audience is the seven churches of Asia (1:4). ߜ It was written on the island of Patmos, a Mediterranean island belonging to modern-day Greece (1:9).

Details are consistent with what scholars know of the Apostle John’s ministry. The writer speaks of the churches in western Asia Minor in a way that clearly demonstrates that he had a relationship with them before the writing and was knowledgeable of its geography. Credible secondcentury historical records state that the Apostle John lived in Ephesus from 70–100 CE. While there, he had a thriving ministry that spread throughout the region. Scholars generally believe that he wrote his three epistles while he lived there, sometime between 80 and 100 CE.

If that’s what happened to the Asian churches, then a later date seems more likely. ߜ Emperor worship: Some commentators believe that Revelation 13 alludes to the Roman practice of emperor worship. Worship of emperors while they were still living didn’t gain prominence until the reign of Domitian (81–96 CE). ߜ Christian persecution outside of Rome: Although Nero is well-known for his persecution of Christians, his focus was limited to the city of Rome itself, not the entire Roman Empire. Some scholars argue that persecution was more widespread throughout the empire, including western Asia Minor, during Domitian’s reign.
