Booklet Notes

The author is not the John who wrote the Gospel. The theme of Revelation is apocalypse: the end of the world and the coming of Christ in judgment. The style and imagery have been unkindly described as ‘deranged’ (A.N. Wilson), and they are certainly unlike anything else in the New Testament. It should be remembered, however, that for the earliest Christians the Second Coming was expected at any time and in any case in the very near future. Revelation is the work of a prophet, and is a unique part of the New Testament canon. It bears vivid witness to this sense of an apocalyptic atmosphere and undoubtedly possesses a terrible beauty. The author is on the island of Patmos and addresses the seven churches of Asia Minor. The date of composition is likely to be some time in the nineties AD.
