The Apocalypse of John is the last book of the New Testament and also its only single prophetic book.  Although with the Apocalypse, the new message of Christian ends, it goes back to the ancient tradition of the Hebrew prophecies and revelations that are in the Old Testament, starting with Daniel, documented.

The author of John, which is identical with the apostle takes the narrative techniques of the prophets, such as enumeration of these poetic visions him by divine inspiration During his exile on the island of Patmos were entered.  He was sent to Patmos because he testified to the word of God

Even in the pre-Christian era, the prophecy of the developed purely oral to written form and in accordance with this phenomenon appears next to the old promise of the coming of the Lord in a new way of revelation: the revelation of the end of the world.  John describes the end of the world to provide the reader with the hope of the coming Kingdom of God.  The Apocalypse of John is indeed inspired by the Jewish tradition, but it has also completely new elements.

The story of John is full of visions, symbols and allegories, which the reader will hardly be explained.  Irreconcilable differences seem to face is: the divine world, inhabited by angels, saints, martyrs and elders as well as the earthly world and its many people dying like ants.  All figures are highly symbolic: the lion and the child, the mother and the dragon, the horses and the locusts, the snakes and the Lamb.  The text goes on all the items from fire to air, from land to water, and he describes the nature - the sea, the mountains, the rivers, the deserts.  It looks as if a message of violence and hope reaches the reader.

Despite his reference to that time, the book remains relevant today and was able to scare the people of every age, warn and charm.
