Great, thank you. :-)

There are two basic ways people approach Revelation (for those who believe it an inspired part of the Bible). One is the historical approach - it is an account of history fron the 1st century down to the last days (e.g. The Finished Mystery, 1917). The other is to believe that it all relates to the "Lord's day" - so is a series of visions for the last days, going back over and over the same period of time but from different angles (e.g. the book Light and subsequent publications of the Watchtower Society) I assume from Rachael's comment that the Chistadelephian
approach does the latter. (I haven't checked, so by all means correct me if I am wrong.)

Thanks Rachael and Jerome for these concise and precise informations.
I guess there is an untold history behind this change of approach to Revelation.
