This book reveals or unveils Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1) as the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth (Revelation 1:5). Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, was covered in Revelation chapters one through three, Jesus Christ, the firstborn of the dead, was covered in chapters four and five, and Jesus Christ, ruler of kings on earth, started in chapter six and continues to the end of the book.

The apostle John wrote Revelation (1:1, 4, 9, 22:8) most plausibly and historically around 95 AD while on Patmos. The ultimate theme in the book of Revelation is the coming glorified Christ to rule and reign on earth and throughout eternity (1:7-8).
