A Wilderness 

A preparation.  Repent for the time is near for the first coming.  The voice of John the Baptist.  That was then and now the time is near for the second coming.  The message is the same.  Prepare the way.  Repent.  He is the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come.  Get ready.

A Revelation 

A purely Jewish composition if you take away the churches and the name of Jesus, which is mentioned only 12 times.  Lamb is mentioned 27 times.  John the Baptist knew the Lamb of God.  John the Apostle knew that.  He also knew Jesus and the churches.  He also knew about the followers of the Baptist in Ephesus.

A Church History 

A problem with the churches.  Eusebius mentions six of the seven churches of the Apocalypse but never associates them with the Apocalypse.  He doesn’t mention Antipas.  All this would be consistent with an earlier version of the Apocalypse written by John the Baptist.  Victorinus has a similar problem.
