As the author of this commentary explains, the very first word of John’s composition, “revelation,” is an essential clue for the interpreter of Revelation. The primary intent of this literature is to reveal the “mysteries of God” to believers presently experiencing oppression and suffering. This commentary will help you discover the meaning behind the complex ideas and images found in this last book of the Bible.
Wall’s commentary is a valuable contribution to the study of Revelation. It interacts well with most of the leading contemporary scholarship in the field. It provides an angle of perspective on John’s vision that opens some new vistas into its meaning and provides healthy correctives of many misconceptions. This is a useful resource for college and seminary classes on Revelation and a helpful tool for those with theological/biblical training who would lead Bible studies on Revelation.
