Outline of Book of Revelation

Scholars differ on the breakdown of the book of Revelation.  Here’s my favorites amongst them.  I have no idea what BSF’s approach will be.

There are 7 visions in the book of Revelation recorded by John.  Four are considered key and they all begin with the words “in the Spirit”  (Rev 1:10; 4:2; 17:3; 21:10).

The 7 Visions are:

1)  The church on Earth (chapters 1-3)

2)  The Lamb and the seven seals (chapters 4-7)

3)  Seven angels with trumpets (chapters 8-11)

4)  The church persecuted by Satan and the beast (chapters 12-14)

5)  The seven bowls of God’s wrath (chapters 15-16)

6)  Judgment of Babylon (17:1-19:10)

7)  Final judgment and victory (19:11-22:21)

Another Outline I found is this:

I  Introduction:  the return of Christ (1-1:8)

II  Christ, the critic of the churches (1:9-3:22)

III  Christ, the controller of destiny (4:1-16:21)

IV  Christ, the conqueror of evil (17:1-21:8)

V  Christ, the consummator of hope (21:9-22:5)

VI  Epilogue, appear and invitation (22:6-21)

Numbers will be very significant in the book of Revelation so pay attention when you see them.  I will be pointing these out as we go along.  The number seven is chief among them.
