Basic Structure of the Book of Revelation

Part of the Book of Revelation For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Reading the Book of Revelation can be challenging — the storyline twists and turns and isn't strictly chronological. The author of the Book of Revelation, Saint John the Divine, offers a transcription of seven letters and later describes strange beasts, visions of judgments, governments, demonic battles, heaven, and a new world order — a prophetic vision for the end of the world. Even through all of this there is a clear structure; take a look at the layout of the Book of Revelation:

  • Prologue (Rev. 1)

  • Letters to the seven churches (Rev. 2–3)

  • The throne room and the scroll with seven seals (Rev. 4–5)

  • Judgments and vignettes

    • Seal judgments (Rev. 6)

    • 144,000; the multitude (Rev. 7)

    • Trumpet judgments (Rev. 8–9)

    • The angel and a little scroll (Rev. 10)

    • Two witnesses (Rev. 11)

    • A pregnant woman and the dragon (Rev. 12)

    • Two beasts (Rev. 13)

    • 144,000 on Mount Zion; three angels; harvest of the earth (Rev. 14)

    • Bowl judgments and the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 15–16)

    • A woman on the beast and the fall of Babylon (Rev. 17–18)

  • The Millennium and the Last Judgment (Rev. 19–20)

  • A new heaven and new earth (Rev. 21)

  • Epilogue (Rev. 22)
