Standard dispensational commentary, January 1, 2009
By rossuk (London, UK) - See all my reviews

John F. Walvoord (1910-2002) has written what I regard as the standard dispensational commentary on Revelation. Written in 1966, it is well written and certainly better than the commentary by La Haye (1973). I strongly disagree with his position and the dispensational interpretation is clearly in a minority among scholarly commentaries now. But if I was to pick one dispensational commentary this would be it. Walvoord was president of Dallas Theological Seminary from 1952 to 1986. Walvoord is the 24th most cited commentator on Revelation among 7 recent scholarly commentaries (1997-2005).

He takes a futuristic and a literal approach. He regards the first seal as the Antichrist i.e. the beast out of the sea of Ch 13, the 144,000 are the godly remnant of Israel during the great tribulation, the two witnesses are two prophets, the woman of Ch 12 is the Jewish nation of Israel, Babylon is Ecclesiastical and political entity (Papal Rome), on Ch 20 he is premill. The literal approach focuses on Jews (Israel) rather than the church, which is its fatal flaw.
