John, Domitian, and the Letters of Revelation

When most people hear “Revelation,” they immediately think “end times.” Are there end-times elements in the book of Revelation? Yes. But what most people don’t consider is what Revelation meant to those who first received it. There is a historical context to Revelation. And if we don’t understand that context, we misunderstand and misinterpret what’s there.
