Seventieth Week of Daniel 9:27 as a literary key for understanding the structure of the Apocalypse of John
|Author: ||McLean, John|
No current consensus on the structure of the Apocalypse of John exists. This study demonstrates that the judgment section of the Apocalypse (Rev. 4-19) is structured, in part, by the seventieth week of Daniel 9:27. The synoptic eschatological discourses of Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 provide the historical link between Daniel 9:27 and the Apocalypse. Chapters correlate common apocalyptic features among the texts, produce a framework by which the judgment section of Apocalypse is structured, and critique current proposals.
"McLean's thoroughness shows in extensive footnotes and a thirty-eight-page bibliography. He has made a solid contribution to the interpretation and appreciation of significant portions of Scripture." - Bibliotheca Sacra
