yeah – that’s how I like looking at revelations. It’s a fantastic allegorical political treatise.
It wasn’t supposed to be included in the Bible either. The current form approved by that Ecumenical council was the entire list provided by the majority Eastern part of the Church but they didn’t want Revelations. But Rome had a much longer list… but it was kind of concession for having removed so many of Rome’s favorites from it.
To this day, it’s rare you’ll see much reference to Revelations in the Eastern churches cause they never really considered it ‘their book’.
