This section draws attention to several things; namely, (1) the meaning of this revelation, (2) the procedure by which this revelation is given, and (3) the significance of this revelation. (1) The meaning of this revelation. “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”—There is a difference between revelation and inspiration. Revelation is the unveiling of God to men in order to make them see; inspiration is the leading of God within men. The phrase “the Revelation of Jesus Christ” has a dual meaning: (a) it is Jesus Christ himself who unveils the things which must shortly come to pass, and these are the things that are recorded in this book; and (b) this book also reveals Jesus Christ himself—it discloses how He will overcome, receive glory, and become King.
