Book: The Bible for the Curious

Chapter: 10. Revelation: The End of the Story

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.35691


‘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.
