1. John makes it clear in the first two verses that the Revelation originated this way:

* a. God the [Father] revealed the vision to God the [Son].
* b. Jesus then sent His angel to reveal it to [John].
* c. John was commissioned to record what was revealed to him so that he could in turn reveal it to the [servants] of Jesus Christ.

2. God's purpose for this vision is to:

* a. Scare unbelievers into repentance
* b. Set the date for the Second Coming of Jesus
* c. Help Christians identify the Antichrist
* d. Show Christians how He plans to accomplish his plans and works in Jesus Christ the Son

3. [True] or False. John the Apostle was literally taken in the Spirit into the future and shown the events as they will actually occur one day.

4. In one of the Bible's rare descriptions of Jesus, John saw Him with clothed with a [garment down to the feet] and girded about the chest with a [golden band] (v.13), with hair as [white as wool] and eyes like a [flame of fire] (v.14), feet like [fine brass], and a voice as the sound [many waters] (v.15).

5. The "key verse" to understanding Revelation is verse 19 because Jesus provided an outline of the Book when He instructed John to write it in the following three segments:

* a. Things he had "[seen]"
* b. Things which "[are]"
* c. Things which will take place "[after]" these things

6. Complete this statement: Chapter [1] is the first section of Revelation, Chapters [2] and [3] are the second section, and Chapters [4] through [22] are the third section. (v.19)

7. The mystery of the "seven stars" is interpreted to mean the seven "angels" or [pastors] of the seven churches; and the "seven lampstands" are the seven "[churches].” (v.20)

8. [True] or False. John saw Jesus standing in the midst of the seven lampstands to signify that He is the One Who provides the light through the Church. (v.20)
