F. B. Hole's Old and New Testament Commentary

Revelation Overview

 

 


THE REVELATION

F. B. Hole.

INTRODUCTION

THE BOOK WHICH IS now to occupy our thoughts has certain very definite characteristics. It is the one book of the New Testament which calls itself a “prophecy,” and in which the final victory of the Divine will and purpose is clearly seen. The very word for victory, though more often translated by overcome or prevail, occurs in it nearly as often as in the rest of the New Testament put together. It was evidently written when the first century was drawing to a close; when, as the Gospel and Epistles of John show, false and even antichristian teachers were beginning to abound, and when as a consequence true-hearted saints might well have had dejection and a feeling of defeat creeping over them. How fitting then that a book portraying the final victory should be given to close the inspired record. Other distinctive features will come to light as we proceed.
