亦称Revelations或Apocalypse of John
《新约》的最后一卷。它有两个主要部分,第一部分包括对小亚细亚几个基督教会的道德告诫,第二部分是历史上曾作过各种解释的一些异常的幻象、寓言和象征。一种流行的解释认为启示录针对的是由于罗马方面的迫害而可能造成当代基督徒的信仰危机。它规劝基督徒们保持坚定的信仰,相信上帝最后会征服他们的敌人。多次提及“千年”,使有些人期望经过一个完整的千年(参阅millennium)后,终将赢得战胜魔鬼的胜利。现代学者接收这样的说法,即这本书不是门徒约翰所写,而是由各个不知名的作者于西元1世纪晚期写成的。

or Apocalypse of John Last book of the New Testament. It consists of two main parts, the first containing moral admonitions to several Christian churches in Asia Minor, and the second composed of extraordinary visions, allegories, and symbols that have been the subject of varying interpretations throughout history. A popular interpretation is that Revelation deals with a contemporary crisis of faith, possibly the result of Roman persecutions. It exhorts Christians to remain steadfast in their faith and hold firm to the hope that God will ultimately vanquish their enemies. References to “a thousand years” have led some to expect that the final victory over evil will come after the completion of a millennium (see millennialism). Modern scholarship accepts that the book was written not by St. John the Apostle but by various unknown authors in the late 1st century AD.
