Description

This project compares John’s description of the events to take place in time and the sequence which he chose to present them. Story time refers to the events the author describes (the WHAT happens), while discourse time refers to the manner and order of such telling found in the penned words (the HOW is told). Although James Resseguie has produced a Narrative Commentary on the book of Revelation it does not fully demonstrate the temporal framework, especially matters concerning story time and discourse time. The following is explored: A timeline of the story time of Revelation; an analysis of key temporal markers in the book; and places of apparent recapitulation.
