Bible - Revelation, A Forgery

bible300

Is the Book of Revelation a forgery?

James Tabor

James D. Tabor (born 1946).
Professor in the Department of Religious Studies,
University of North Carolina, Charlotte USA

    My thesis is a simple one. I believe that behind the New Testament book of Revelation is potentially an older Jewish apocalyptic text that had nothing to do with Jesus or the early Christian movement.

I will attempt to identify the additions, or interpolations, made by a later Christian writer, as can often be done where original Jewish texts have had a Christian overlay. The aim being to "Christianize" a book that in its origins had nothing to do with Jesus.   JamesTabor.com/revelation

In the Book of Revelation, verses which were corrupted as later additions or interpolations are printed in bold text with strike-through line.

Notice how the words in bold text with strike-through line can easily be removed from the Bible passage, and it would not detract from the structure of the overall reading.


Book of Revelation

The revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place; he made it known by sending his angel to his servant John
who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ even to all that he saw.
Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of the prophecy, and blessed are those who hear and who keep what is written in it; for the time is near.
John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne,
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood,
and made us to be a kingdom, priests serving his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
I, John, your brother who share with you in Jesus the persecution and the kingdom and the patient endurance, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus
and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city that is prophetically called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified
Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her children, those who keep the commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of Jesus
And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the witnesses to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly amazed.
Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your comrades who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy
Then I saw thrones, and those seated on them were given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is LORD God the Almighty and the Lamb
It is I, Jesus, who sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star
The one who testifies to these things says, Surely I am coming soon. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen
