The Book of Revelation, also called the Apocalypse which means that which has been disclosed, and also called the Revelation to St John, is traditionally considered to be the work of the Lord’s apostle who later wrote the fourth gospel and the letters. It is dated in the middle of the last half of the first century.
St John received his vision “on the island called Patmos.” He was “in the Spirit on the Lord’s day” when he received God’s command to write the letters “to the seven churches of Asia” (1:4-10). Each of the seven messages contains the words of Christ for the specific church (2-4).
