Reseña del editor

For the understanding of the Revelation of John it is essential to put ones self, as far as is possible, into the world of its author and of those to whom it was first addressed. I ts meaning must be sought for in the light thrown upon it by the condition and circumstances of its readers, by the authors inspired purpose, and by those current beliefs and traditions that not only influenced the fashion which his visions themselves took, but also and especially determined the form of this literary composition in which he has given a record of his visions. These facts will explain what might seem the disproportionate space which I have given to some topics in the following Introductory Studies. The Apocalypse is the one book of the New Testament whose theme is the doctrines of the Last Things, the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God, that is, to use the common theological term, the doctrines of Eschatology. But these had a growth, running through the periods of biblical history; and the A pocalypse, springing from the heritage of these centuries, contains much, especially as regards form, which belongs to this eschatological development. The more fully, then, one comprehends the earlier eschatology, its history, and the prevalence of its principal conceptions, the better is one fitted to understand the Apocalypse in its leading aspects. I have therefore given a rather long chapter to the eschatology of the Old Testament and late Jewish writers, together with that of the different parts of the New Testament. Reference is frequently made to this to elucidate the A pocalypse. A second topic requiring somewhat extended notice is that of the late Jewish writings called by scholars A pocalyptic.

Thanks to Wipf & Stock Publishers we now have a reprint of Beckwith's massive (810pp) commentary originally published by MacMillan in 1919. This is one for the scholar with 416 pages devoted to introductory studies alone, but this makes it worth buying. This is a major commentary and is quoted by most of the other scholarly commentaries since then. Amongst recent (1997-2005) scholarly commentators he is still the ninth most quoted author.

He sees the first seal as conquest; the 144,000 as the Whole church of God; the two witnesses are Elijah and Moses; the woman of Ch 12 is the ideal church of God OT & NT; Babylon is Rome; he is premillennial on Ch 20.

Endnote: for a more modern commentary I would go for Osborne.

"The Apocalypse of John," by Isbon T. Beckwith, was first published by Macmillan in 1919. It has been reprinted several times since. This is far more than a commentary; in fact, the commentary itself takes up slightly under half of its nearly 800 pages.

The "introductory studies" include chapters on the eschatological hope from the time before the Patriarchs to the NT era, apocalyptic literature, the times and the purpose of John's apocalypse, the question of unity, characteristics of John's literary manner, the theology of the apocalypse, history of interpretation of the apocalypse, early circulation and recognition, authorship, and the identity of the Beast. This is followed by a short analysis of the text (the Greek manuscripts) of Revelation.

The commentary itself is a careful verse-by-verse study of Revelation and is written from a classic amillennial perspective. However, Beckwith treats interpretations that differ from his own fairly and with respect.

While good commentaries on Revelation abound, this is one of the best and should be read by every serious student of the book. Even if Beckwith had never written the commentary itself, the first half alone would make it worthwhile, since this contains information not otherwise readily available from a single source.
