Christopher L. Scott (Revelation Studies) – Dallas Theological Seminary Grad

Gab Share

This person has an outstanding blog about the book of Revelation. Each link takes you to an in-depth study of portions of Revelation. I went through his website to organize the links for easy access. Mr. Scott is one of THE BEST Bible expositors on Revelation in the Bible. I have organized his Revelation commentaries into an easy to follow format, with lots of helpful study tools. He uses the New Living Translation a lot, which is one of my favorites and goes deep into the Greek text, which is helpful for a Revelation study, since the English translation can be muddy, especially in Revelation. I am deeply studying Revelation for my work in progress, my novel, and find that most teachers on Revelation haven’t really done their work and are coming up with interpretations that violate context or are not well thought out and accurate.

As a former Peter Ruckman devotee, I am rereading Ruckman’s Revelation commentary and Ruckman is off about eighty percent, due to only trusting the Textus Receptus (Greek text from which the KJV is translated) and King James Bible and ignoring other outstanding translations like the NASB, NIV and New Living Translations. Nope, Ruckman, Westcott and Hort (behind the Greek text that is the basis for more modern translations) were NOT Roman Catholic agents. In fact, they refuted a lot of Catholic theology. Every now and then, Ruckman hits a goldmine though (since the King James Bible is a great translation), so that’s why I’m rereading his Revelation commentary. Jesus corrected me about my King James Bible only position in 2012 and I’ve evolved and grown a lot as a Christian since then. My views are very close to the Dallas Theological Seminary doctrinal statement (for those who teach at Dallas Theological Seminary now).

I disagree with Mr. Scott that the two witnesses of Rev. 11 appear in the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation. I feel they appear in the first half. Check out this excellent video by Dr. John Whitcomb on this topic. You can read a transcript of the video here:
