What is the apocalypse? Joseph Seiss observes that the title givento this climactic book of the New Testament does not refer to the unveiling or revealing of a message. The 'revelation' is the manifestation, uncovering, or presentation of the person of Jesus Christ himself. The book of Revelation is 'a portrayal, not of the dim outlines of the fortunes of the Church...but a scenic account of the actual occurrences of that period 'when Christ shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels.'' Written from a conservative, premillennial position, this classic work affirms the centrality of Jesus and His coming work of retribution and reward as the keys to understanding Revelation.
