Title: Dating the Apocalypse to John
Author(s): SLATER, Thomas B.
Volume: 84 Issue: 2 Date: 2003
The present study re-examines the major arguments for dating the Apocalypse to John. It argues that internal evidence should be preferred over external witnesses and that the internal evidence suggests, based upon the ex eventu prophecy in Rev 17,9-11, that the book was written in 69, either late in Otho’s reign or early in Vitellius’ reign.
