The Book of Revelation The New International Greek Testament Commentary

#ad
Eerdmans #ad - K. In the course of beale's careful verse-by-verse exegesis, which also untangles the logical flow of John's thought as it develops from chapter to chapter, it becomes clear that Revelation's challenging pictures are best understood not by apparent technological and contemporary parallels in the twentieth century but by Old Testament and Jewish parallels from the distant past.

Too often revelation is viewed as a book only about the future. As G. Beale shows, however, revelation is not merely a futurology but a book about how the church should live for the glory of God throughout the ages -- including our own. Engaging important questions concerning the interpretation of Revelation in scholarship today, as well as interacting with the various viewpoints scholars hold on these issues, Beale's work makes a major contribution in the much-debated area of how the Old Testament is used in the Apocalypse.

The Book of Revelation The New International Greek Testament Commentary #ad - Cambridge University Press. This monumental commentary on the book of revelation, has been highly acclaimed by scholars, originally published in 1999, pastors, students, and others seriously interested in interpreting the Apocalypse for the benefit of the church. Approaching revelation in terms of its own historical background and literary character, Beale argues convincingly that John's use of Old Testament allusions -- and the way the Jewish exegetical tradition interpreted these same allusions -- provides the key for unlocking the meaning of Revelation's many obscure metaphors.
