s (of the Gospel and the Epistles). The earliest witnesses the fathers of the church attribute Revelations to John the apostle, the son of Zebedee. This subject most of the scholars have divided in two lines, which are external and internal evidence. The external evidence consists of the testimony of the church fathers, which is nearly unanimously in favor of the opinion that the apostle John was the author of the Apocalypse. These include Papias, Justin, Martyr, the Muratorian Fragment, Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Hippolytus, Origen, and Methodius. But in the year (247-264), a notable exception to this testimony was Dionysius, a bishop of Alexandria, and Eusebius, who was persuaded by Dionysius.
On the other hand, the first internal argument, offered by Dionysius is that whereas Revelations identifies its author as “John”, but the other letters and the Gospel does not mention any name. Second, the vocabulary of Revelations differs significantly from the Johannine writings. Finally, Dionysius claimed that Revelations is written in poor Greek, in contrast to the good Greek style of the other Johannine materials. However, on balance then, the external and internal evidence seems to point to the apostle John as the author of the Apocalypse or, at the very least, a member of the Johannine School who were trained and worked for the same cause Jesus Christ. Many scholars agreed that John wrote his Gospel from Ephesus, therefore, John could leave many disciples in the region of Asia Manor

The other is about the year 95, A.D. during the persecutions by Domitian, which replaced Nero the other Roman Emperor who was also very cruel to the Christians.

rches which were in Asia Manor. And the primary purpose was to comfort and encourage the Christians in their present and coming persecutions by assuring them of the final triumph of Christ and his followers.
The first chapter of Revelation is “the things you have seen.” Revelation two and three cover “the things which are”; and Revelation four through twenty-one are “the things which shall take place after these things.” The book contains several events which are named in groups of sevenths. First of all, seven letters (chaps. 2-3); second, seven seals (5:1-8:1); third, seven trumpets (8:2-11:19); and seven bowls (15:1-16:2). Right after these four events is interrupting by several interludes that took place immediately (7; 1-17; 10:1- 11; 13; 12:1-14:20). The book of Revelations concluded with the judgment of “Babylon,” and worldwide apostasy, and the final triumph of God’s Kingdom (17-21). In terms of literary structure, Revelations contains four visions, and each of t ...
