Abstract

The results of a study usually depend, to a large extent, on the methods and approaches used. Considering the different methods that are used in interpreting the book of Revelation and the different results they yield, the claim that "no other book of the New Testament has found so many entirely different interpretations as the Revelation” appears tenable. Consequently, this paper re-examines and evaluates the various methods that are used in interpreting the book of Revelation. The intention is to propose an interpretive method that consistently takes into account the essential principles for interpreting the book of Revelation, bearing in mind the variety of genres that are evident in the book.
