INTERTEXTUALITY AND THE USE OF SCRIPTURE IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION?
AbstractIn an article in 1993 and a monograph in 1995, I used the literary concept of intertextuality to describe the complex use of the Old Testament in the book of Revelation. In this article, I review seven recent monographs (Ronald Farmer, Robert Royalty, Gregory Beale, Alison Jack, Sverre Bøe, Pilchin Lee, David Mathewson) and an important article by Paul Decock to determine whether intertextuality has proven to be a useful concept for understanding John’s use of Scripture.
