The Book of Revelation Doctrinal Commentary: Unveiling Jesus Christ is a two-volume book is a verse-by-verse commentary of the Book of Revelation from the King James Version of the New Testament. The commentary is extensively annotated with footnotes that set forth the views and opinions of theologians and Biblical scholars from many different religions, although the doctrinal views predominantly align with those found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. John the Revelator's symbolism and images are explained with reference to multiple Old Testament books, including Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Joel and Zechariah. Jesus Christ is the major focus of this doctrinal commentary in connection with the creation of all spirit bodies in premortality; the premortal conflict between Lucifer (Satan) and Jehovah (Christ) during the grand council in heaven and the war in heaven; Christ's physical creation of multiple worlds; the mortal ministry of Christ among the Jews and the establishment of his ancient church; the postmortal ministry of Christ's spirit in paradise after His crucifixion; the post-resurrection ministry of Christ among the Jews, the Nephites on the American continent and lost ten tribes of Israel; the ongoing conflicts between Christ and Satan in the earthly kingdoms of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome and the modern nations of the earth; the great apostasy that followed the apostolic period; the restoration of Christ's latter-day church in preparation for His Second Coming and the resurrection of His saints; Christ's millennial reign of peace on the renewed and paradisiacal earth for 1000 years, followed by the final defeat of Satan's kingdom at the end of the earth and its celestialization. These topics and many more are explained in this detailed unveiling of Jesus Christ in the Apocalypse of Saint John the Divine.
