The Apocalypse… Do You Ever Wonder Who the Four Horsemen Are?

Standard

Secret GenealogyBefore we wonder about the four horsemen, let’s define Apocalypse. From the Greek apokalypsis and the French apokalyptein meaning “to uncover,” an apocalypse is anything viewed as a prophetic revelation, any disclosure. The ancient Jews had their Apocalyptic movement and their writings in the Book of Daniel is an example of their “uncovering” of the future. The Christians used the New Testament, the last book of the Bible, The Revelation of St. John the Divine, to display their version of Apocalyptic writing.SecretGenealogyIIFrontCover
