Reviews - What do customers think about Apocalypse of John?
A very useful reprint. Jan 1, 2006
Thanks to Wipf & Stock Publishers we now have a reprint of Beckwith's massive (810pp) commentary originally published by MacMillan in 1919. This is one for the scholar with 416 pages devoted to introductory studies alone, but this makes it worth buying. This is a major commentary and is quoted by most of the other scholarly commentaries since then. Amongst recent (1997-2005) scholarly commentators he is still the ninth most quoted author.
He sees the first seal as conquest; the 144,000 as the Whole church of God; the two witnesses are Elijah and Moses; the woman of Ch 12 is the ideal church of God OT & NT; Babylon is Rome; he is premillennial on Ch 20.
