Item description for Triumph of the Lamb: A Commentary on Revelation by Dennis E. Johnson...

The book of Revelation by its very name, is an unveiling, a vivid disclosure of invisible realities. And yet, confronted with bizarre imagery that is alien to our experience, we are often left asking, "What in the world does this book mean?" In this section-by-section commentary, Dennis E. Johnson deftly guides us through questions about how to interpret Revelation, what kind of literature it is, what it meant to its original audience, and how it equips us today for spiritual warfare. Describing Revelation as "a book of symbols in motion" and "a book permeated by worship," Johnson gives special attention to the Old Testament background of John's pictorial vocabulary and how vision-cycles structure the Apocalypse. He casts light on the historical, religious, and cultural contents of John's first hearers in Asic Minor, a church under attack. The central themes of Revelation emerge to fill out our vision of Christ's triumph over the enemy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Triumph of the Lamb: A Commentary on Revelation?

One of the best commentaries on Revelation  Feb 2, 2008
Johnson's commentary is amillenial, exegetically sound, and detailed without becoming verbose. I have read numerous commentaries on Revelation, and I consider this one of the very best. It ranks alongside William Hendriksen's More Than Conquerors and Vern Poythress' The Returning King, but is much more in-depth than either of those. Also highly recommended is Kistemaker's commentary.
Revelation is a lot easier than I thought it was  Mar 31, 2006
For the past 15 or so years I have avoided Revelation, in part because I assumed the book would be too difficult for a normal guy like me to understand. Recently I decided it was time to stop neglecting this portion of God's Word.

Thanks to Dennis Johnson for producing such a well reasoned commentary without the sensationalism so common in modern Christian writings. I never dreamed that Revelation would make sense to me or, as it has, become my favorite book of the Bible. It pretty much summarizes the entire Bible.

I would encourage any who have, like me, been scared of Revelation to simply read it for what it says and compare Scripture with Scripture (rather than the evening news). Triumph of The Lamb will help you through this study. It certainly has helped me tremendously.
A great book...but these aren't new ideas---  Feb 22, 2006
This is a wonderful exposition of Revelation.
Many people seem surprised by Johnson's excellent detailing of Revelation's truths.
Yet this kind of teaching is NOT NEW to the church or the world. It is what had been believed all down through the history of the church. WILLIAM HENDRIKSEN (1940), WILLIAM MILLIGAN (1800's), and many many others have taught for AGES that the Old Testament is THE key to unlocking this book.

The general population has a problem with their understanding of The Book of Revelation only because a couple of highly popular authors have been teaching their own unscriptural fantasies about the Book of Revelation for the past 30 years.

I don't have to name names because these two sensationalists are so popular that everyone knows who I'm talking about.

The false church, along with the world, latches onto the utterances of these people because they do not understand the Book of Revelation either, allowing these two, along with a few others, and also another very odd man and his scary wife to get away with saying all manner of foolish speculations about the Book......though no one can refute what they say because so few have read the first 65 books required in order to break the code of the Book's symbology.

For many, many years, great theologians and teachers have taught the correct translation of The Book of Revelation, yet their voices have been drowned out by the popular worldly speculators whose theology is just plain wrong.

Dennis E. Johnson is not wrong, and I whole-heartedly recommend this book to anyone who has the love of the truth, and whose greatest desire is merely to know the TRUTH, regardless of what it is.

I also want to communicate to everyone reading this that there are many other great authors and teachers who know and love the truth, and lay it out nicely for everyone to understand. It's time we stood up and put an end to these money grubbing so-called teachers, who are nothing more than wolves in sheeps clothing.

I recommend the Revelation and prophecy-related books of These other wonderful and highly competent teachers of Truth:

William Hendriksen, G. K. Beale, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Louis A. Brighton, John Stott, Craig Koester, Leon Morris, Everett I. Carver, Richard Brooks, John Wick Bowman, Jay E. Adams, Earl Wesley Morey, Simon Kistemaker, Eugene Boring, Paul Butler, Vern Poythress, Philip E. Hughes, G.B. Caird, R.C.H. Lenski, Philip Mauro, Louis Berkhof, William Milligan, Herman Hoeksema, Stephen S. Smalley, William E. Cox, O.T. Allis, Michael Wilcock, Albertus Pieters, Geoffrey B. Wilson, Archibald Hughes, Ray Summers, & Malcolm Smith. There are also many others whom I haven't the time and space to name.
These good people lovingly teach truth and are not given to wild, ridiculous speculations about a future which the bible speaks nothing about. They don't try to make scripture fit their own silly pre-conceived notions, but instead exegete scripture by what it actually says and means, regardless of their own beliefs.

I apologize for saying little about Dennis's book, but I'll let the other reviewers speak for that. I agree that it his is a fine tome indeed. It's an easy read as well, so you don't have to keep a dictionary by your side the whole time, and I consider that to be a major issue with Revelation related books. Many great theologians are very lacking when it comes to being able to relate their great knowledge to others, especially the student and layman. Dennis has the great gift of relating his truths in an easy and understandable way.

I merely needed to get this off my chest after reading some reviews here where people seem very surprised to see a Revelation commentary which espouses that which most of the underground church has ALWAYS believed. This is only what has been taught for century upon century by many respected teachers and theologians (Though overshadowed by the popular masses).

Yes, Left Behind and The Late Great Planet Earth sell alot of books. Thats about all they have done, unfortunately...That is, make money. Sadly though, the one thing they haven't done is taught truth.
Excellent Resource!  Nov 23, 2004
I just finished teaching an adult Sunday School series on Revelation. My brother-in-law, who is a professor at the same seminary where Dennis Johnson teaches, suggested this book as a resource. I relied heavily on this tome throughout the 11 weeks of the course, especially since I did not like the curricula I had found and ended up creating my own curriculum. The writing is clear and easy to follow. The concepts are organized and well thought out. The theological concepts and explanations are sound, scholarly work. Dennis did a great job tying in themes and references to the Gospels and Hebrew Scriptures. Bravo!
Not The Fantastic Approach To Revelation You May Be Used To  Mar 18, 2003
This book presents an explanation of the last book of the Bible that makes sense. It is not what is so commonly being preached and taught today. It is a view that shows that Revelation really does connect to the rest of Scripture making one complete unit. The author also gives short explanations of some other ways to view the difficult passages allowing the reader to better evaluate these texts. It is rare to find so much of the book of Revelation keyed to Old Testament passages that also look to the future, even beyond our day. Chapters and verses of Revelation are easy to locate all through the book so one can quickly take a look at those puzzling passages. I highly recommend it to each who is interested in learning more about the interesting way Revelation presents human and heavenly events - many times in different ways from different views. Some of these events are already past; but some (and these peak my interest) remain for us to still expect.
