The figurative language of the book of Revelation poses a real problem. When the apostle John recorded his vision, he described
locations and events that he had never seen before.
What should be understood literally and what should be interpreted allegorically?
What do the literal or figures of speech represent?
Since the apostle's writing, have any of these events occurred in human history?
How do other eschatological prophecies, outside of Revelation, harmonize with the apostle John's prophetic vision?
It continues to be the source of great confusion, division, and question.
