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 history of the bible 

A Canon 

A redaction at the turn of the fifth century.  Jerome defined the bible when he finished the Vulgate which would become the official bible of the Church. It contains the oldest existing copy of the Apocalypse.  We can only speculate on what it looked like before that time based on other older existing documents.

a number of questions 

A Reason for Prophecy 

A search for understanding.  Why, Where, Who, When, and What?????  The answers should make sense.  All the questions must be considered.  For the most part we are limited to speculation which should be consistent with what we do know.  The first question is Why.  Why was the Apocalypse written?

a hidden meaning 

A Book That Is A Mystery 

J. Massyngberde Ford may have been the first to suggest John the Baptist was the first writer of the Apocalypse. She is not the first to suggest multiple writers.  Others suggested that it was first written in Hebrew.  Most agree that there is little agreement regarding the Apocalypse.  So we continue to speculate.
