a bottomless pit

A Recapitulation 

A vision not in chronological order.  In chapter 9 and 11 we have the beast coming out of the “bottomless pit” and in chapter 20 the beast is being cast into it.  Victorinus was the first to suggest this theory of recapitulation.  The bottomless pit is also consistent with the beast that was, is not, and yet is.  The two beasts are really the same.

A Recapitulation 

A proven teaching technique.  Victorinus employs Recapitulation to understand the Apocalypse.  Visions of the Apocalypse are repeated and are not necessarily in chronological order.  Do not assume the chapters of the Apocalypse are in chronological order.  It can lead to significant misinterpretation.

A Recapitulation 

A vision in the Apocalypse that is repeated.  A theory developed by Victorinus that is necessary to understand what John wrote.  It means chapters in the Apocalypse can’t be considered to be in chronological order.  That only leads to misinterpretation and a great deal of confusion.

A Recapitulation 

A reinforcement, a necessary theory in understanding the Apocalypse first introduced by Victorinus of Pettau.  It holds that the visions are not necessarily in chronological order and possibly a repetition of other visions.  Many interpretation errors are a result of assuming the chapters are in chronological order.

A Recapitulation 

a commentary on the Apocalypse by Victorinus who introduced the theory of recapitulation.  Without it misinterpretation is likely.  The visions of John cannot be understood to be in chronological order.  Each vision should be considered independent of the others.  Some are a repetition of others.  Recapitulation is a necessary tool in understanding the Apocalypse.
