Professor Bauckham looks closely at Revelations own literary dynamics as a closely integrated literary whole. He investigates Revelations intertextual relationship with the Hebrew Bible, illustrating how constant disciplined allusion to the Old Testament scriptures is a key element in the way Revelation conveys meaning. There is fresh study of the relationships between Revelation and other Jewish and Christian apocalypses. And there is extensive examination of Revelations contemporary context. Revelation emerges as a work of meticulous literary artistry, remarkable creative imagination, radical political critique and profound theology. Above all, its central message, portraying itself as the climax of the biblical prophetic tradition and claiming to reveal the secret of Gods purpose for the final coming of Gods kingdom, appears with fresh clarity. This comprehensive investigation continually breaks new ground. Some of Revelations distinctive literary techniques are identified and studied for the first time; and a wide range of new evidence from Revelations literary and historical contexts is brought to the elucidation of the text.
