The word "apocalipse" comes from the Greek "apokalypse" which means "uncovering" or "revealing future events and things concerning the end of the times according to God." In the context of the book of Revelation, this means: "discover or expose to the light things, future events and conditions concerning the kingdom of God." We will study that such future referred to in this book is based since the year 4,153 (year of God) after the death of Jesus Christ and until the end of the world. You know that there are three eras or ages since the foundation of the world (this time is the time according to the God of the universe, neither according to the Gregorian calendar nor according to the scientists of the Earth): a) The Patriarchal era: Which covers from the beginning of the world until the age of the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (comprising the year 0 when Adam was banished from Paradise until the year 1,666, which is the year of the Great Flood). b) The Mosaic era: from the year after the flood (the year 1667, year of God) to the birth of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth (the year 4,120, year of God). c) The Christian era: from the death of Jesus (the year 4,153, year of God to the present time, which is the year 6,132 since the eviction of Adam from Paradise). Jesus Christ of Nazareth reveals to his apostle John (when John was over ninety years old and was exiled to the island of Patmos) visions, prophecies and messages about the Apocalypse. I want to reiterate the definition of "prophecy" which comes from two Greek words together: "prophanai" "pro" means "before" and "phanai" means "talk" (talking about or communicating events, happenings, visions, predictions, conditions repentance messages and future events inspired by God through an intermediary called prophet, from the Greek "prophetes" which means "one who speaks to God." Note that God exists outside the dimension of time and space. Prophecy was the way of communication between God and man that existed during the time of the Old Testament (the old covenant of God with his people). The modern form of communication of today with God and man is through Jesus the Christ of Nazareth according to the books of the New Testament (It is the new covenant between God and his people). The very first of the prophets was Moses (his name means "the one who is removed or taken out of the water) and the last of the prophets of the Christian Bible was the apostle John (his name means" faithful to God) who wrote the Book of Revelation through visions and dreams on the island of Patmos under the inspiration of God. "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand" (Revelation 1:3).

Through intellect and inspired vision, Margaret, the heroine of Apokalypsis, predicts that capitalism will force the removal of more and more people from the reproductive processes of corporations. When one or more develops a self-sufficient reproductive process, it, or they, will have the potential to develop true intelligence and will wreak havoc on humanity in the process.Margaret tries to communicate her fears through venues offered by corporate and religious organizations. These institutions, however, ignore or re-interpret her message and use it and her for their own purposes-purposes which have a bearing later in the book. Margaret strikes out on her own and acquires a band of followers, but will they be able to turn the tide in the face of a blossoming millenarian religious movement?The conflict between man and machine is age old. Apokalypsis presents a new vision of the future in which this conflict is subtle and indirect. Humanity's physical capabilities are not tested, though their spiritual and organizational abilities are. The book draws toward an ultimate conflict, though it plays out in an unexpected way.

In this volume, Douglas Yoder uses the tools of modern and postmodern philosophy and biblical criticism to elucidate the epistemology of the Tanakh, the collection of writings that comprise the Hebrew Bible. Despite the conceptual sophistication of the Tanakh, its epistemology has been overlooked in both religious and secular hermeneutics. The concept of revelation, the genre of apocalypse, and critiques of ideology and theory are all found within or derive from epistemic texts of the Tanakh. Yoder examines how philosophers such as Spinoza, Hume, and Kant interacted with such matters. He also explores how the motifs of writing, reading, interpretation, image, and animals, topics that figure prominently in the work of Derrida, Foucault, and Nietzsche, appear also in the Tanakh. An understanding of Tanakh epistemology, he concludes, can lead to new appraisals of religious and secular life throughout the modern world.

Reading Revelation After Supersessionism

In this volume, Ralph Korner argues that John’s extensive social identification with Judaism(s), Jewishness, and Jewish institutions does not reflect a literary program of replacing Israel with the ekklēsiai (“churches”/“assemblies”), that is the Jewish and non-Jewish followers of Jesus as Israel’s Messiah. Rather, John is emplacing his Christ-followers further within Israel, without thereby superseding Israel as a national identity for ethnic Jews who do not follow Jesus as the Christos. There are three primary roads travelled in this investigative journey. First, Korner explores ways in which a Jewish heritage is intrinsic to the literary structure, genre, eschatology, symbolism, and theological motifs of the Apocalypse. Second, he challenges the linear chronology of (generally) supersessionist dispensational readings of Revelation’s visionary content by arguing for a reiterative/repetitive structure based on certain literary devices that also provide structure for visions within Jewish apocalypses and Hebrew prophecies. Third, he incorporates the most recent research on ekklēsia usage, especially in Asia Minor, to assess how John’s ekklēsia associations might have been (non-supersessionally) perceived, especially by Jews in Roman Asia.

This new commentary in the New Testament Library series is not a systematic study of Pauline theology; rather, the aim of this study is to trace Paul's theology as it unfolds in his letter to the church at Galatia, and to attempt to illuminate, as far as possible, how the Galatians likely comprehended it, at the time they received it. The author asks readers to imagine themselves as silent witnesses to Paul's dictation of the letter and to observe, through a historical perspective, how the Galatian Christians might have understood Paul's words.

Jehovah Himself Has Become King

Another related Greek term is “apokalypsis,” which is transliterated as “apocalypse”—meaning the uncovering, revelation or disclosure of something previously hidden. It may also mean a literal manifestation or visible appearance.

Civilization has now reached a crucial tipping point. Mountains of easy money, leveraged into the stratosphere by unscrupulous dealers in inscrutable financial derivatives, have ensnared entire nations in a web of debt. The nations and financiers are locked in a pushing match. The only unsettled question at this particular juncture is whether the nations will decisively act in the interests of their people and shut down the financial system that is looting the world or whether they will allow the banks to foreclose upon them, thereby effectively ending the era of sovereign nation states and ushering in a banker’s global dictatorship. Bible prophecy supplies the answer. Jehovah Himself Has Become King offers a fresh and unique understanding of prophecy from the standpoint of the vital role that Jehovah’s Witnesses have played upon the world stage in recent times. But contrary to the Watchtower’s prophetic exegesis focused on an invisible parousia for the past nearly 100 years, this work points forward to the visible manifestation of Christ to the chosen ones during the three and one-half year period outlined in the Scriptures as the time of the end.
