    Re: Revelation – point of information (AKA my inner pedant has been triggered)

    I can’t help but comment on your comment that Revelation is meaningless. The Book of Revelation is meaningful in its context. It is apocalyptic literature. Here’s the thing, it applies to the time and place in which it was written, ie mid to late first century, and nowhere else! The references would have been clearly understood by the author’s intended audience. Textual scholars have known and understood this for a couple of hundred years.

    For example the ‘Seven Headed Beast’ represents Rome and the number of the beast, 666 or 616 depending on form, is Nero, the emperor at the time, in Greek (alphabetic) numerals as he had two distinct official names.
