Theology Of Revelation
In discussing the meaning of theology
John Gill states that Suidas
(an early church Greek scholar and linguist) in his comments about John
the Apostle says that
'he wrote "Theology" by which he seems to mean the book of the Revelation, which book some have observed contains a complete body of Divinity'.
Gill says that in the book of Revelation
'we are taught the divine authority and excellency of the sacred Scriptures; that there is but one God, and that he only is to be worshipped, and not angels; that God is the Triune God; that there are three Persons in the Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that God is eternal, the Creator, and Preserver of all things; that Christ is truly God and truly man; that he is Prophet, Priest, and King; that men are by nature wretched, blind, naked, poor, and miserable; that some of all nations are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; and that they are justified and washed from their sins in his blood; the articles of the resurrection of the dead, the last judgment, the sad estate of the wicked, and the happiness of the saints may be observed in it'.
