Revelation appears to have been written at the time of the Roman emperor Domitian. The situation in which Revelation was composed is similar in many respects to that of the book of Daniel, written more than two centuries earlier. The author of Revelation made extensive use of Daniel and other apocalyptically-oriented biblical writings.

Much of Revelation is taken up with descriptions of the judgments awaiting God's enemies, in particular, the emperor, the imperial cult, and the city of Rome itself.

The church does not escape judgment entirely. The "letters to the seven churches" in chapters 2 and 3 contain both rebukes and exhortations.

Revelation ends with a glorious vision of "the world reborn and Paradise revisited."

Revelation does not provide us with a "roadmap" to the future; nevertheless, it is a valuable book that still challenges and inspires modern believers.
