Because of its rich figures of speech, scholars have used a variety of hermeneutic approaches in an attempt
to understand the book of Revelation resulting in the development of several interpretive models.
Unfortunately, most Believers now read Revelation through the bias of an interpretive model
regardless of whether the interpretation makes sense against the text itself.
Is it possible to employ an objective hermeneutic approach (i.e. the more you observe, the less you need to
interpret, etc.) where one can read Revelation in the sequence that the apostle John wrote and take the
natural meaning of his words?
