Jerusalem, Rome, Revelation – John’s Apocalypse Written Before 70 A.D.

3.   The book of Revelation itself makes it clear that God in Christ (through His Spirit) is Himself the Primary Author4 of that document.   However, under that Triune God, the Apostle John is the sole ‘secondary author’ – and therefore the (one and only) human author of the book of Revelation.   Indeed, most scholars have never even questioned the Apostle John’s authorship of the last book of the Bible.

4.   The approximate date of John’s oral reception of this ‘revelation’  from Jesus Christ  and apparently also of John’s inscripturation of the book5 – was probably around 69 A.D.  After that time, John reputedly lived on until about 100 A.D.
