Five evidences for the divinity of Christ in the book of Revelation

  1. Jesus shares the title ‘Alpha and Omega / the First and the Last / the Beginning and the End’ with God the Father himself (Alpha and Omega (Rev. 21:6; 22:13); First and Last (Rev. 1:17; 2:8; 22:13), Beginning and End (Rev. 21:6; 22:13). This is all the more amazing considering that the source of the phrase is Isaiah 44.6, where Yahweh says, “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.”
  2. The angels in Revelation don’t allow John to worship them, but Jesus is worshiped in Revelation chapter 5.
  3. Jesus shares the throne with God the Father (Rev. 3.21, 22.3)
  4. There is a doxology in Revelation 1.5-6 that is directed to Christ.
  5. Jesus is given many exalted titles in the book (see the names for God in Revelation)
