Overview

The book of Revelation simply cannot be understood apart from the Old Testament.

Through Old Testament Eyes is a new kind of commentary series that illuminates the Old Testament backgrounds, allusions, patterns, and references saturating the New Testament. The structure and content of the Old Testament were second nature to the New Testament authors and their audiences, but today’s readers have no reference point for understanding their intricate role in the New Testament. Bible teachers, preachers, and students committed to understanding Scripture will gain insight through these rich Old Testament connections, which clarify puzzling passages and explain others in fresh ways.

The images of Revelation—like a seven-sealed scroll, four horsemen bringing destruction and death, locusts from the Abyss, and more—often seem hopelessly complex to today’s readers and have led to egregious misunderstanding and misinterpretations. But as Tremper Longman demonstrates in Revelation through Old Testament Eyes, this confusion arises from unfamiliarity with symbolism that Revelation’s first readers readily comprehended. In large part, the imagery arises from first-century AD Greco-Roman culture and from the Old Testament, with its own background in ancient Near Eastern literature. Through its unmistakable Old Testament connections, Revelation exhorts readers to persevere in the present and place their hope in God for the future.

Avoiding overly technical discussions and interpretive debates to concentrate on Old Testament influences, Revelation through Old Testament Eyes combines rigorous, focused New Testament scholarship with deep respect for the entire biblical text.

    This commentary reads like a regular futurist commentary. It also has editor booboos. In his comments about Revelation 2:14, Longman referenced Numbers 25:14 but wrote, "After this divine command was given, an Israelite named Cozbi brought a Midianite woman (apparently allied with the Moabites at this point) into the camp." Ummm, Cozbi was the Midianitess, not the Israelite man.
