Revelations location setting: in and around Jerusalem
Zion, Armageddon, the Euphrates and Jerusalem are mentioned in Revelation
The Revelation seems to refer to the city of Jerusalem by various names. Examples are: “the holy city”, “Mount Zion” and “the great city”. Other used geographical phrases are “Armageddon”, “the great river Euphrates” and the island of “Patmos.” Certain location settings could also be confusing. For example, consider “a place prepared for her in the wilderness”, “the East”, and “the public square of the great city – which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt – where also their Lord was crucified”. What did John hope to convey with these? Unsurprisingly, this has made it the subject of rigorous study for over 2,000 years. And with the passing of the centuries, vastly different opinions and interpretations have arisen all over the world.
