“Time, times and half a time”, 42 months and 1260 days
1260 days, 42 months and “time, times and half a time” describe 3,5 years
Time frames such as “about half an hour”, “1,260 days”, “42 months”, “a time, times and half a time” are far too specific to be considered insignificant. It feels like John’s peculiar phrasing intends to convey something specific. Time is a complicating factor when reading the book of Revelation. Another famous subject of contention is whether the Apocalypse addresses the past, present, or future or whether it’s a book of general principles meant for every generation. How you answer that question largely determines how you interpret Revelation as a whole. But even on a smaller scale, time makes things tricky. Revelation Illustrated offers a thematic analysis about time in the book of Revelation.
Revelation Illustrated is a graphic retelling of the book of Revelation. Through 420 illustrations, John’s visions are depicted verse-by-verse as clearly and objectively as possible. Thematic analyses conveniently offer unique, enlightening perspectives on themes like structure, place, and time. Studying Revelation through pictures has proven to be a goldmine. It makes this book an indispensable tool for anyone eager to delve into what is often considered one of the Bible’s most confounding books.
