Product Description

In this well-known commentary originally published in the Zuercher Bibelkommentare series, Roloff attempts to give a new understanding of the book of Revelation. He argues, "the understanding of Revelation that has been favored down to the modern era is not satisfactory- the book does not intend to present an interpretation of church and/or world history, and it is a mistake to interpret particular images in terms of specific events and persons... John does not intend to provide a predetermined portrayal of the course of the world for the later church. Instead, in a very concrete, contemporary situation he is concerned that the oppressed interpret their situation in light of their faith in the reign of the exalted Christ over this history. Jurgen Roloff is Professor of New Testament at the University of Erlangen in Germany.

Publisher's Description

"Roloff has produced an intrepretation of the Revelation of John that can be certain to gain the special interest of theologians because of his . . . emphasis on the Christological starting-point of Revelation and the perspective that this discloses for the Christian community." -- Hans-Friedrich Weiss "In this commentary, one catches the Revelator's vision of eternity ablaze with promise and expectation of accountability in the bleakness of the present. May this book find many who are willing to dialog with the Revelator." -- Frederick Danker
