The Book of Revelation is about Jesus Christ
In the Bible, the Book of Revelation starts out with the phrase, “The revelation of Jesus Christ”. The central point of this book is a about a person, and that person is Jesus Christ. Now as I was preparing this lesson and the outlines I really wanted to find out about John. John wrote the book of Revelation, but he also wrote the gospel of John the epistles of I, II, and III John as well. What kind of person was John? What type of relationship did John have with Jesus Christ? Did John just know Him in an objective way?
“Oh my, this is quite a book!” So many things are mentioned in the twenty-two chapters of Revelation. Christ is portrayed in a rather mysterious way and there is also a discussion of the Antichrist. You’ve got the Tribulation and God’s judgment on the world. Babylon is discussed in detail and then you have this city at the end of the book referred to as the New Jerusalem. There are a lot of mysterious things in this book. I began to prayerfully read through it just to get an idea of what it all boils down to. I noted that the first three words in the Greek text of Revelation are: revelation, Jesus, and Christ. What is this book really about? Is it about prophecy? Yes, there is prophecy in it. Is it about the Antichrist? Yes, it talks about the Antichrist and the mark of the beast and all these things. I came to realize that this book talks about one person and that one person is Jesus Christ. In order to understand the book of Revelation properly we need to see Jesus Christ.
The book of Genesis is a very proper beginning to the Bible and Revelation is a proper conclusion to the Bible.
