a speculation 

A Conjecture 

A reasonable explanation to address what is not settled.  Who wrote it?  When was it written? Why was the Apocalypse written?  The Apocalypse has “a decidedly Jewish complexion” and it was suggested that John the Baptist was the first writer.  Others have suggested multiple writers.

a reason to believe 

A Home for Doubt 

A necessary explanation for what we experience.  We have to make sense of it.  To ignore it is to deny reality.  To deny objectivity.  Call it speculation, conjecture, or whatever but please accept the fact that there must be a reason, a purpose, a meaning, etc.

a commentary 

A Witness 

A view of what was.  We don’t know what the Apocalypse looked like in the third century.  Victorinus knew and we know what his commentary looked like.  It didn’t include the seven churches John wrote to.  It did include the seven churches Paul wrote to.  There is a reasonable explanation for this.

a private revelation 

A Need To Understand 

A confession by Augustine.  “What then, Brothers, shall we keep silence? Why then read it if only to keep silence about it? Or why hear it if it is not to be explained? But also, why explain it if it is not to be understood?”  Read, write, and share so others might understand.  Silence is not an option.

A Radical View That Is Consistent With History 

A reasonable explanation.  An unsettled mystery.  Who, When, What, and Why?  Especially the Why but the Who might explain all the others.  John the Baptist preparing the way for the Way, the Truth, and the Light.  The first coming.  The Lamb of God.  The time was near for this prophecy.
