First delivered in 1853, these lectures present a scholarly view of Revelation. Kelly focuses on the Greek text, believing that Scripture interprets Scripture, and that using outside methods such as rationalism is unnecessary and even harmful. In the introduction, Kelly defends his position against C. E. Elliott, author of Horæ Apocalypticæ: A Commentary on the Apocalypse, Critical and Historical, as they disagreed about the use of the Old Testament to interpret the book of Revelation. This volume is an important example of textual criticism, as well as solid biblical theology. It also includes Kelly’s translation of Revelation from the original Greek.
Lectures on the Book of Revelation is perfect for students, professors, historians, and anyone wanting a greater grasp on this divisive book of the Bible. With the Logos edition, all Scriptures are linked to the Bibles in your library, making study fast and easy.
William Kelly (1821–1906) was an Irish scholar. He was a prominent member of the Plymouth Brethren, a conservative evangelical school of thought. Specializing in textual criticism, Kelly published several works on various books of the Bible.
