Revelations in Context

Tradition has it that St John the Evangelist, also known as St John the Divine or St John Theologian, composed the book of Revelation in a cave on the island of Patmos whilst in exile. Much of the book of Revelation has puzzled much of the church for much of that last 2,000 years.
