Abstract:

The aim of this commmentary on John's Apocalypse is to render it readable and appealing. Built around the orderly presentation of the author's translation of John's Greek text, the commentary enables the reader to perceive and appreciate the literary unity, coherence, and definable theological emphasis of John's composition. Intended strong points are a comprehensible analysis of the carefully wrought, rhythmic structure of John's visions, of his understanding of the "end-time" in which we live, and of dominant thematic aspects such as presenting God's Holy War of Liberation as the Gospel. The commentary tries to do justice to John's own intention of providing an open, "unsealed" book for a variety of readers.
