Introduction to the Book of Revelation



The author identifies himself as “John” (Rev. 1:1,4,9; 21:2; 22:8), a “servant” or slave of Jesus Christ (1:1) and “brother” and “companion in tribulation” to his readers. The name John was common among first-century Jews (Matt. 3:1; Acts 4:6; 12:12), being a form of the Hebrew name Johanan, meaning, “the Lord is gracious” (2 Kings 25:23; 1 Chron. 3:15; Jer. 40:8, etc.).
