A Testimony Of Jesus Christ 

A first coming.  The Lamb of God.  We are preparing for the second coming.  Two thousand years ago John the Baptist was preparing for the first coming.  The word lamb is used 27 times in the Apocalypse.  John the Apostle knew the seven churches, Jesus, and John the Baptist.

A Reasonable Explanation 

A need to understand.  A hypothesis is a proposed explanation for something that doesn’t make sense.  It must be tested.  Is it consistent with what we do know for sure?  How do you explain John introducing himself three times?  There are three different writers named John who had something to do with the Apocalypse.
