Chapter Summary

This introduction chapter of the book titled The Morphology of Koine Greek As Used in the Apocalypse of St. John: A Study in Bilingualism deals with the Problems of Interpretation with regard to this enigmatic book almost as numerous as the variegated images and the many symbols which St. John makes pass our mind's eye. The Composition of the Apocalypse, especially its unity of composition, was soon questioned, because the order of the events to which the different visions were supposed to refer, raised chronological difficulties. On the whole scholars have confined themselves in this respect to discussing incidental facts, in this way neglecting to give an overall picture of the author's style and language. F. Hitzig defends the thesis that the Gospel of St. Mark and the Apocalypse have been composed by one and the same person, who would be nobody else but John Mark.

Keywords: bilingualism; Koine Greek; St. Mark gospel; Apocalypse of St. John
