Hi Patricia,

Actually, the book of Revelation is attributed to the Apostle John while he was exiled to the isle of Patmos. And what John wrote was in the "Hebrew fashion". Much of the book of Revelation is taken from the prophets of the Old Testament, such as Isaiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Zechariah, Joel, etc. It is merely a summation of what the OT prophets wrote. When one realizes this, then the book's "mysteriousness" in it's use of metaphor is not so mysterious, because all the symbolism is explained throughout the rest of the Bible.
