Abstract

This chapter investigates the theme of eschatological vengeance in the Revelation to John, focusing especially on the theme of true vision in Revelation 4-5 and the imagery of violent vengeance in the vision of the rider on a white horse in Revelation 19:11-21. After considering the relation between christology, eschatological vengeance and moral vision in the book of Revelation, the chapter concludes with hermeneutical reflections on reading Revelation from a peace perspective.
