A First John
who bare record to prepare the way. The Apocalypse is about the first coming, not the second. Just read it without the churches, Antipas, and Jesus. You will find what John the Baptist wrote. A careful reading of Eusebius and Victorinus will show that they were not aware of the churches or Antipas. There is only one explanation for this. Their copy did not contain them. The one written by John the Baptist. Just search the Bible for the word ‘lamb‘ and you will find John knows the Lamb of God.
Watch for more pieces that fit. Blessed is the one who looks.
