Polskie komentarze katolickie do Ap 14,13
Polish Catholic Commentaries on Apoc. 14:13
the Holy Scripture
Studia Gnesnensia, t. 30, 2016, s. 273-287.
The interpretation of the text of the Apocalypse of St. John has always inspired great interest. On the one hand, this stems from the very literary genre of the Book of Revelation suggesting unveiling some mystery, especially the one related to the future (Nevertheless, as a form of prophesy, the Apocalypse should refer to the present). On the other hand, however, the language of the Book, abounding in symbols, signs and references to other Books of the Holy Scripture, has always required profound erudition. The text interpretation has never been simple let alone any attempts at explaining its meaning and message. The issues in Apoc. 14:13 do not constitute the main subject matter of the whole Book. Nonetheless, they are important for every Christian’s life. If Christ’s words regarding the persecution of the disciples are of timeless and universal character, then the question concerning the reward for one’s perseverance becomes essential for any believer. What will he / she receive in return for his / her efforts, rejection, suffering or death? This article endeavours to demonstrate how St. John’s text was commented on and explained on the basis of the post-war Catholic exegesis.
