John’s Gospel begins with a war between light and darkness (John 1:5), but this war is not consummated until darkness is vanquished at the end of John’s Revelation (Rev. 21:25). John’s Gospel begins with the claim that the divine Word is tabernacled among us in Jesus (John 1:14) while John’s Revelation ends by claiming that the tabernacle of God will be among men forever (Rev. 21:3). Jesus comes down from heaven as a bridegroom in the Gospel (John 1:14; 3:29), but there is no bride coming down from heaven until the end of Revelation (Rev. 21:2).
John’s Gospel: A Neglected Key to Revelation? explores the literary and thematic patterns—both consecutive and chiastic—that tie the fourth Gospel and Revelation together. When read as a literary diptych, the two books create a pattern of interlocking typologies. Warren Gage suggests that they were composed to interpret each other. An appendix further supports that thesis by demonstrating that the same consecutive, literary and thematic patterns are discernible in the Gospel of Luke and Acts—books generally recognized as penned by the same hand.
