Has it ever been considered that Revelation is written with this idea
presented up front? "The revelation of Yahshua..." and not of John, and
that therefore most of the writing is of quotes transcribed by John.
Obviously, if this is true, then Revelation would obviously appear
different from the Gospel or Catholic Epistles of John.
