Revelation

Unique and Unusual

Revelation is an example of “apocalyptic literature,” the only such book in the New Testament.  Apocalyptic implies “revealing secret information.”  The book of Revelation identifies Jesus Christ as the “Alpha and Omega” (1:8) and reveals the number 666 as a sign of “the beast” (13:18).
