This study guide introduces the principles of interpretation that it consistently follows throughout the paragraph-by-paragraph exposition. The most basic of these is: the Book of Revelation first has to be understood from the viewpoint of the original readers and only then can it be related to today. As simple and common-sense as this rule is, it is amazing that it is so seldom followed in the interpretation of the Apocalypse. Historical and cultural background of the first-century Roman province of Asia provides tremendous assistance in interpreting the text, as well as the Old Testament background for the imagery, numerology, and theological motifs of Revelation.
