This reading of Revelation views the text as John’s response to the problem of social accommodation in the churches of Asia Minor. Knight works from the hypothesis, now increasingly argued in scholarly circles, that there was no persecution of the Christians by the emperor Domitian at the end of the first century CE, and he explains the references to martyrdom in the Apocalypse as mainly symbolic. Knight argues that John is creating awareness of a crisis in order to call his readers to a stricter pattern of behaviour than Paul had allowed when writing to the Corinthians. This readable chapter-by-chapter commentary on the book concludes with a section on the main theological ideas of Revelation. This is a reprint of the edition originally published in 1999.

Reviews

  1. Michael Naylor, Review of Biblical Literature.

    One of the strengths of this brief volume is that Knight seeks to situate John’s Apocalypse within the wider context of early Christianity. In many cases, Knight demonstrates ways that John, although using distinctive imagery, communicates notions expressed elsewhere in other early Christian writings … a clear and engaging reading of the book of Revelation.
