The book of Daniel was written by the person whose name it bears, there is no reason to doubt.  Ezekiel, who was a contemporary with Daniel, bears testimony to his piety and rightness, ranking him in this respect with Noah and Job:  “If I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out My fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast; though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, says the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.”  (Ezekiel 14: 19, 20.)  His wisdom, also, even at that early day, had become proverbial, as appears from the same writer.  “Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from you.”  (Ezekiel 28: 3.)  But above all, our Lord recognized him as a prophet of God, and bade His disciples to understand the predictions given through him for the benefit of the church: “When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy  place (whoso reads, let him understand), then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains.” (Matthew 24:15,16.)

Just as Genesis is the book of beginnings, The Revelation is the book of consummation.  In it, the divine program of redemption is brought to fruition, and the name of God is vindicated before all creation.  Although there are numerous prophecies in the Gospels and Epistles, The Revelation is the only New Testament book that focuses primarily on prophetic events.  Its title means “unveiling” or “disclosure.”  Thus, the book is an unveiling of the character and program of God.  Penned by John during his exile on the island of Patmos, The Revelation centers around visions and symbols of the resurrected Lord, Jesus Emanuel, The Christ, who alone has authority to judge the earth, to destroy sin and sinners with it, to remake it, and to rule it in righteousness.
