Abstract

To believers who were in jeopardy, the writer of Revelation presented powerful arguments to encourage them to persevere. Rhetorical analysis shows that he contrasted a mundane and a transcendent worldview. He argued in favor of the transcendent one by urging his readers to favor God’s reality over that of their culture, to believe God’s interpretation of their situation over their own limited one, and to value God’s purposes in their history over those of a materialistic world.
