The book of Revelation is a message from Jesus to the Church concerning the end time. It was written by the Apostle John as he was on the Isle of Patmos around 95 A.D. Jesus came to him in a vision and showed him things concerning the end of human history. It is a type of writing known as apocalyptic (unveiling something hidden, futuristic). The major themes include the Seven Churches in Asia, the Rapture of the Church, the Great Tribulation, the Second Coming of Jesus, the Millennium Kingdom, the final judgment, and New Jerusalem.Learn More
