Christ in the Book of Revelation.
Biblical Studies from the CBA. Mahwah, NJ: Paulist Press, 2021.
For many Christians, the Apocalypse of John (Book of Revelation) remains a closed book. Yet it provides one of the richest resources for christological reflection in the whole New Testament, and for centuries functioned as the Church’s Easter book par excellence, presenting in vivid imagery the victory of the Paschal Lamb. Engaging narrative, historical-critical and reception-historical tools, this proposed volume will introduce readers to the multiple dimensions of Christ as portrayed in the Apocalypse, within the unfolding narrative of John’s visions, and exploring the Jewish and Greco-Roman background to the book’s christological titles and images.
