When you really begin to study the book of Revelation, you quickly discover that the towering image of the exalted Christ completely dominates the landscape. The book has been considered by many to be foreboding--full of denunciations and threats. Grotesque beasts glare threateningly from its pages. Monstrous powers of evil appear. Hundreds of volumes have been written attempting to identify the beast and his image. The good news is that the beast is not the hero of the book. The of Revelation emphasizes Jesus Christ, the "Man of Revelation."
