Understanding Revelation

You cannot understand the NT book of Revelation unless you are already steeped in the literature of the OT. Every sentence, every image, depends on the OT.

If you try to read Revelation without understanding the OT, you might come up with all kinds of fanciful ways to interpret it that do no justice to the book and its context.

Not that it would ever happen.
