Synopsis

This monograph examines the problem of universally inclusive language in the book of Revelation and the resulting narrative tension created by narrowly exclusive language. Analysis is conducted by placing relevant texts within their literary-narrative context and through consideration of how the author understood and appropriated biblical traditions. By including an examination of four early Jewish documents with similar features, a contextual picture emerges which allows a fuller understanding of Revelation's distinctive approach toward the problem of the fate of the nations to emerge.
