From the Publisher: There are two major entities at the close of the book of Revelation that serve to explain the author's understanding of forthcoming life with God. These are the City that comes down from the sky, the heavenly Jerusalem, and the cosmic Lamb. The marriage of these two marks the concluding high point of John the Seer's work. What are the entities in question? How do they marry and what is the significance of that event for those who believe in Jesus as cosmic Lord? This book treats of the ancient city in comparative perspective to make explicit what is implicit in this high-context narrative concerning the descending Jerusalem. It further explains the significance of the celestial marriage of the City and the Lamb. The result is a set of reading scenarios that describe and explain Revelation's closing visions that mediate the theology of John the Seer.
