One upon the Throne and the Lamb

A Tradition Historical/Theological Analysis of Revelation 4-5

Series:

Russell S. Morton

One upon the Throne and the Lamb: A Tradition Historical/Theological Analysis of Revelation 4-5 is an analysis of the tradition history underlying Revelation 4-5 and the way John employed these traditions. The hypothesis is that John incorporated themes from the Hebrew Bible and Jewish tradition, especially apocalypticism and Greco-Roman themes, to present his vision of God and Christ. In the process, John has transformed the traditions to present a unique and exalted vision of both God and Christ.
