The Book of Revelation contains some of the most difficult passages in Scripture. Grant Osborne's commentary on Revelation aims to interpret the text while also introducing readers to the perspectives of contemporary scholarship in a clear and accessible manner.
Osborne begins with a thorough introduction to Revelation and the many difficulties involved in its interpretation. He discusses authorship, date of writing, and the social and cultural setting of the work. He also examines elements that complicate the interpretation of apocalyptic literature, including the use of symbols and figures of speech, Old Testament allusions, and the role of prophetic prediction. Osborne surveys various approaches commentators have taken on whether Revelation refers primarily to the past or to events that are yet future.
As with all volumes published in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, Revelation seeks to reach a broad audience with scholarly research from a decidedly evangelical perspective. Each volume in the BECNT series interacts with the best contemporary scholarship, offering up-to-date, accurate, and authoritative analysis of the Greek text through rigorous exegesis and exposition.
"[Shows] a thorough and comprehensive engagement with the original text, a highlighted summary and introduction to each block of material, a verse-by-verse exegesis and exposition, a further highlighted summary and 'contextualisation,' which seeks to draw out practical and relevant points of application, and, in most cases, additional notes on the Greek text. . . . An important exegetical tool."--Iain D. Campbell, Themelios
