Are you avoiding my arguments about the initial Revelation being strictly a Jewish text, with no Jesus in it?
I want to point some errors and unevidenced extrapolations of yours in your book.
From what you wrote here,https://drive.google.com/file/d/1P0AGZa ... kLYsJ/view
420 years that the second temple was in service: that would bring to 516 - 420= 96 BCE
Traditional rabbinic literature states that the Second Temple stood for 420 years and based on the 2nd-century work Seder Olam Rabbah, placed construction in 350 BCE (3408 AM)".
However, Seder Olam Rabbat wrote about that well after Revelation was completed.
And you equate 1260 days to 1260 years based on Ezekiel 4:6. But next you take 1260 days as just that for the duration of the siege of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 CE.
BTW, the siege of Jerusalem lasted 4.5 months not 3.5 years.
And how do you surmise the woman taken in the wilderness represents Jerusalem/Israel?
Something else I found from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rqFg-s ... oLqkf/view:
Where did you see in the one thousand years kingdom of Christ passage in Revelation that Jerusalem will be prosperous? Certainly not in Isaiah 29:1. In Revelation, the saints are in a camp, the beloved city.
And from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WpWPIk ... sqTHo/view
And why do you interpret the harlot in Rev. 17:5 as Jerusalem instead of Rome (Goddess Roma).
You wrote:Who died are two unnamed prophets and not Jesus (according to your bias).The city where they crucified our Lord (Rev 11:8)
The two prophets (Jesus and Zerubbabel) in Zechariah 4 is depicted as Jesus. They died, 3.5 days they were raised and take to heaven. As a result the kingdom of the world became the kingdom of God (Rev 11:15). Sounds like Jesus to me.
I am well aware of Seder Olam Rabbah's text and I cited it on page 91 of my book.
The goal of the entire campaign was Jerusalem. Remember, we are looking at history from our perspective and not theirs. If you were writing it from as someone in Rome you would think that the entire war was to defeat Jerusalem.
Were you aware of the chiasmus built from chapters 2 to 4 of Zechariah in Revelation 11 & 12?
The thousand years you will not see, because what I showed is only the first draft that included Isaiah 29. Things came into it draft by draft, so you cannot look at the first draft of Gone with the Wind and ask why is this not in it? Remember, I have 5 logical drafts of Revelation, for example, this is the post I did for how the Mighty Angel and the Scroll got into the book of Revelation: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5035&start=20#p97802. That will show you a snapshot of my work, how things got moved around and how things got added. You can imagine the enormity of the work when I go through that level of detail on every section in Revelation.
I want to know, is your work absolute proof, or is it a hypothesis?
