Revelation: A New Heaven & New Earth | The Bible Project
Apocalyptic Bodies traces the biblical notions of the end of the world as represented in ancient and modern texts, art, music and popular culture, for example the paintings of Bosch. Tina Pippin addresses the question of how far we, in the late twentieth century, are capable of reading and responding to the 'signs of the times'. It will appeal not only to those studying religion, but also to those fascinated with interpretations of the end of the world.

Matthew 27 51 speaks of an earthquake. Bible History Daily, October 24, God allowed Satan to fool man. Why else end the book by saying I amvthe bright and morning star aka Lucifer? The references to Jesus do seem to be insertions. The Revelation does not change by removal of these insertions. Neither does it change by leaving them in. The author was very careful not to change the document. To me, the Revelation seems to be stitched together from several early sources. Its purpose is to explain specific sections of those earlier documents. It is intended as an overview of earlier ideas and writings.
That is why it seems to abruptly stop with one story line, and pick up another. The apocalyptic end time is considerably personal.
But this is reflected in history as a whole. They are inextricably linked together. What happens in history is the backdrop of the personal stage upon which we all espouse our brief monologues. You will always have the poor, and wars, and earthquakes and volcanoes. That is nothing new. The signs of the times are always here.
For which of you is it the end time? And the big question is, will you personally find God in your life? This is what the whole Bible is about; walking and talking with God as your personal friend, in a return from your self-imposed exile, back to the Garden of Paradise. I think the Book of Revelations has a relationship to the Book of Genesis,not sure when but there is or seems to be, a running process that begins with 12 patriarchs and in Revelations you see 24 elders.

You also see 12 pearl gates. Those pearl gates may be in reference to 12 females and it would make sense if there were 12 patriarch there should be 12 matriarch, Although there was supposedly 13 in the beginning, and if you follow that trend of thought you will see one fem in the Old Testament that beckons them in for destruction. This whole series of replies to this article confirm the truth of that prophecy…starting with Tabor, a man forever willing to think outside the box a good characteristic but unwilling to be guided and bound by truth a fatal flaw. The replies devolve from there.
Revelation cannot be read as a separate book from the rest of the Bible, as Tabor implicitly suggests. Its only aim is to interpret and explain in a coordinated and consistent way all the loose ends of previous books of both OT and NT. Jesus appears in chapters on earth only because of John 1, Revelation however talks about him only: it is pure christology. For instance the churches are represented as menorahs because they must conform to Christ Rom 8,29 , who is symbolised as a menorah by Zech 4,2.
So alla Zech 3,,14 is applied to Christ. Fascinating that people are coming around to the idea that Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls have a clear link to the New Testament writings. The Secret Initiation of Jesus at Qumran made this kind of connection a decade ago, meeting a similar critical response and apathy, but the evidence was backed by the opinion of Josef Milik, the greatest Scrolls expert of his time, who linked John the Baptist to Qumran and early Christian writing.

He produced evidence that he excavated a headless skeleton at Qumran, which he said was that of John the Baptist, and this was documented and supported by his wife Yolanta. My first thought about this is that task of applying Jesus to a pre-existing apocalyptic text seems more difficult than Dr. Tabor lets on. It would mean more than just adding some phrases related to Jesus here and there. It would also mean providing the entire portion containing the letters to the 7 churches to create something relevant to early Christianity.
Not only is the 12th chapter the summary of the whole controversy a chiasm, in itself, the whole book is. The prologue with the letters to the churches mirrors New Jerusalem and the epilogue:. There was a portion cut out of a previous text which was thematically similar to what replaced it with the letters.
Both the prologue with the letters and the epilogue with the revealing of New Jerusalem were completely new additions to a much shorter apocalyptic writing spanning from what is numbered as Revelation However, that seems unlikely because the book makes little sense without its beginning and end. Overall, the idea that Jesus was superimposed onto Revelation seems highly unlikely because of the sheer difficulty of pulling it off. Granted, John certainly drew off many other works to homogenize primordial symbols and bring them all into focus and relevancy.
An example is given of Moses using his rod to make water come out of the ground. Perhaps the book of Revelation is a time capsule for our generation to open. Down in the dark earth there stand bronze cauldrons, their lids are of abaru-metal, their handles of iron.
Bible moralisée (moralized bibles)
Whatever goes in there comes not out again; it perishes therein. Let them not come back! Nothing has been omitted. There are no loose ends. Now we see clearly the grand finale as well as the beginning. The last part of the Bible closes out the record begun in the first part. Who was this John referred to as the writer of Revelation in its first chapter? We are told that he was a slave of Jesus Christ, as well as a brother and sharer in tribulation, and that he was exiled on the island of Patmos.
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
Obviously he was well-known to his first readers, to whom no further identification was necessary. He must be the apostle John. This conclusion is supported by most ancient historians.
