Understanding the Book of Revelation

So many people have tried to figure out this book of the Bible. The book of Revelation to many, but not all, is a total mystery clouded in symbols. The key to the whole book, at least one perspective of the book, is shown in the very first verse. The theme and focus of the book is actually so simple, but easy to miss. It’s a theme that hits almost every chapter of the book. It is the main character of the story of the book of Revelation.

Look at the first verse: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ…”. Could it actually be so simple? If you began to scan the book from this angle or perspective, you would notice that almost every chapter has something about Jesus Christ. Well maybe one exception, chapter 13 which is about the anti-Christ. Yes, there are many other ways to look at this book, but I think this is the most important and consistent way to see Revelation.

So now we have a research job to do, highlighting all verses with mentions of Jesus Christ whether directly or in symbolism.

In chapter one, there are many references to Jesus Christ. In the last chapter of the book of Revelation, Jesus is symbolized by the Lamb sitting on the throne. At this point in the book, God is fully in control and evil is pushed out.

Don’t forget, the book of Revelation is the best conclusion to the entire Bible of 66 books.
