What at first might
seem a diversion from the general straight forward pathos of the Revelation story is actually a presentation for the
edification of the reader as preparatory for a full readers' comprehension.
The scope of Revelation is diverse.
The concepts that arise span many disciplines and require background information in Physical Sciences, Genetics, Sociology,
Psychology, History, Biological Evolution, etc., to mention a few.
The reader is asked to
play the game of "Clicking" and bounce around, as one page opens from links available on another page. As the various
pieces of information become gradually interwoven into the fabric that is The Revelation, the whole will become greater as
the pieces sum together.
Except for the first three chapters, The Revelation was actually all Jewish prophecy which existed at least 200 BC, before
Jesus was even born!
(Link to the Encyclopedia Judaica)
This means that what Revelation says is a Jewish thing, not just Christian. It is verified by the Jews, themselves, as totally
true and valid as an ancient document, without alterations from what we now read today.
It was the same from long before Jesus appeared util this very moment. This means neither Muslim nor Atheist can say it
is changed in time. Nor is Revelation different from what was actually written long ago!
This book begins by introducing several concepts which identify elements and entities used throughout
the Revelation, in general. The chapters and paragraphs which mention these entities are the first pages of the book
as one clicks from link to link. The intent of such a presentation is the pre-educational psychological set of the readers
mind which makes it clear what these recurring concepts mean. For instance, page one of this book begins with Revelation
1:8 because this verse identifies who it is that dictates this letter to John. This is followed by specific terminologies
for the other symbolized entities such as the 7 churches to whom John is to send this letter.
means of this approach it is hoped that the reader will immediately grasp the major premise of the whole interpretation.
That premise is to require a rational, historical, even science based insight into what has been written.
The interpretation competes directly with what has come to be called "orthodox" views, which is rather misleading itself,
in that it really means those ancient and evermore archaic concepts that have tried explaining this last book in the
What men have sought to do in the past was to subtly superimpose ideas formulated by
themselves about supernatural possibilities, and even myth-like assumptions, about those entities which, herein, we specifically
and rationally identify as natural and concrete. They have had no choice in the absence of factual identification of
these same entities, due either to the absence of any historical correspondences with those items under their consideration
because those historical events had not yet appear in the history of men, or the vey idea, itself, was not scientifically
understood itself until recently.
The first few pages inside this On-line Book, S6x, S6x, S6x,... are
concerned with introducing these basic concepts. And, this is followed by identifying a number of factual Historical events
which were not available to many of the earliest, most erudite, but clearly wrong church/layman authors of other
explanations and interpretations of the Book of Revelation.
