Exiled to the isle of Patmos over 1,900 years since, a prophet named John wrote a strange letter to fellow Christians. That literal sense is the Apocalypse of John, too known as the book of Revelation, and Christians and non-Christians equally have been debating its message till doomsday since.
The meaning of the Greek expression. for apocalypse is disclosure, and John s part discloses dimensions of two age-old mysteries: the character of evil and the sum total of sensible objects of hope. So influential was Revelation in the soon Christian church that it was placed like the final text in the New Testament, and its popularity has intensified in the centuries from that time.
