a bare record 

A Servant of God 

A “lamb” and the “bare record” ties John the Baptist to the Apocalypse.  Vischer holds the Apocalypse to have been originally a purely Jewish composition.  It would not have included the seven churches that Eusebius and Victorinus failed to recognize.  A reasonable explanation why they didn’t.

a look back 

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.
