Interpretations of Revelation

Interpreters of Revelation generally follow these four main approaches:

1. Idealism: This approach sees Revelation as a symbolic depiction of the ongoing struggle between good and evil, without specific predictive elements. It emphasizes the spiritual and moral truths applicable throughout history.

2. Preterism: Preterists view Revelation as mainly describing events that took place in the early church's context, particularly the persecution under ancient Rome and the fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70.

3. Historicism: Historicists interpret Revelation as a symbolic portrayal of the entire history of the church from apostolic times to the second coming, assigning symbolic meanings to various events and figures.

4. Futurism: Futurists see Revelation primarily as prophecy about future events, including the tribulation, the return of Christ, the millennium, and the final judgment.
