The second angel

READING ACTS: The Message of the Second Angel – Revelation 14:8. Phil Long continues his blog series on the Book of Revelation, concentrating on the seven sights of chapters 12-15. We are on the fifth sight: the three angels and their messages.

As I have noted here, the identification of Rome with the Babylonians in Jewish literature goes back to the pre-Christian period. We find it in the Habakkuk Pesher among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

I have noted earlier posts in Phil's Revelation series here and links.
