John wrote he was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day or the Day of the Lord: ἐν τῇ κυριακῇ ἡμέρᾳ (Revelation 1.10). What John recorded were events that would fulfill the prophecies of the prophets concerning this day (Isaiah 2.12; 13.6, 9; Ezekiel 13.5, 30.3; Joel 1.15, 2.1, 11, 31; 3.14; Amos 5.18, 20; Obadiah 1.15; Zephaniah 1.7, 14; Zechariah 14.1; Malachi. Revelation 6.17; 16.14)The Lord communicated directly to John to them (Revelation 1.4, 11) and warned about events that would soon (τάχος) occur (Revelation 1.1, 22.6) and were “at hand” ἐγγύς (Revelation 1.3, 22.10).The word τάχος (from which we get tachometer) means either (or both) something that will happen soon or something that will happen speedily. Joel wrote that the Day of the LORD was near Date Most commentators maintain Revelation was written about 95-96. The primary evidence for dating Revelation during Domitian’s reign (95-96) comes from Irenaeus.evelation is a confusing book to most people despite the many commentaries written.The reason most commentaries fail to enlighten the book’s contents is because they violate one or more of the three basic principles of sound biblical interpretation.A normal reading of the text is the two witnesses are just that, two witnesses, i.e., two men whom God will use during those days. The most natural interpretation is the two witnesses are two men God has commissioned as servants to reveal Him and oppose the Antichrist.Much of the language in Revelation is figurative or symbolic. Isaiah wrote, “all flesh is grass.” Did he mean skin is bermuda, zoysia, fescue? The text will usually indicate when a passage is a figure of speech by its context or the use of “like” or “as.” In other cases, when symbolic language is used, one can understand the literal sense behind the symbol. We know the Beast is the Antichrist, the one who comes in the place of Christ and opposes Him. In other words, the two witnesses are two witnesses.Exodus 19.6; Matthew 19.28; 1 Peter 2.5, 9; Revelation 5.10).The occasion or timeframe of the book is the Day of the Lord.
Those composing the ἐκκλησία of Revelation were Jews who believed the gospel of the kingdom.
They had believed who Christ was (Matthew 16.15-16; John 11.25-27)–in His identity. The allusions and symbols are Jewish and the passages read like texts from the prophets.
Revelation could snap into the Biblical canon right after Zechariah or Malachi and we would think nothing of it.
If one is open to a normal reading of the text and will allow the Scriptures to speak plainly, Revelation is quite forthright.
Only when one applies a non-literal interpretive method and tries to identify events to past history or impose ideological constructs or theological presuppositions does it become complex, difficult, and impossible to verify.
