The Fifth view of the Book of Revelation
For those who are not aware the Book of Revelation is the last book of the Bible. Otherwise known also as the Apocalypse.
The study Bible that i got says interpreters of Revelation normally fall into four groups:
1. Preterists understand the book exclusively in terms of its first-century setting claiming that most of the events have taken place already.
2. Historicists take it as describing the long chain of events from Patmos to the end of history.
3. Futurists place the book primarily in the end times.
4.Idealists view it as symbolic pictures of such timeless truths as the victory of good over evil.
I believe there's a fifth view, since i found all four views can be accepted, then the fifth view is the combination of all four.
5.United views-combination of the four views.
