Author:Beale, G.K.
Title:The Book of Revelation: A Commentary on the Greek Text
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Carlisle, U.K.
Publisher:Eerdmans; Paternoster
Pages:lxiv, 1245 pages.
Series:New International Greek Testament Commentary
Abstract:Introduction, 177 pages, covers issues thoroughly: discusses date (respects early date, internal evidence; favors late date, Irenaeus tradition); situation of the churches, purpose, and theme; authorship (one of early itinerant prophets); genre; major interpretative approaches (preterist, historicist, futurist, idealist views discussed, but favors an eclectic approach); interpretation of symbolism (nature, method, numerology), the text, use of the Old Testament, grammar issues, structure and plan of the book, the disputed significance of 1.19 as interpretative key, and the theology and goal of the apocalypse. No running text, presence of a Greek New Testament is assumed, with comments directly on the Greek (English often added in parentheses after a Greek expression). Overview of sections of text regularly provided before verse-by-verse discussion. Most details needed for translation are provided and is not difficult to retrieve, but the language is on a high, scholarly level.

Pages:352 p.
Series:New Century Bible Commentary
Abstract:Introduction covers form (Revelation as epistle, as apocalypse, and as Christian prophecy), content and structure, authorship and date, and abiding significance. RSV base.

Author:Beasley-Murray, George R.
Place:Waco, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:xcii, 441 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction discusses the enigma of the fourth Gospel, the origins (relations with synoptics, literary sources, tradition and development, religious relations [Hellenistic, Jewish traditions]), authorship, date and place of writing, aspects of theology (Christology, soteriology, eschatology), purpose, and structure. Each section has bibliography, author's translation (intended to illustrate the Greek), notes on the Greek text, form/structure/setting, comment, and explanation. Good on both broader aspects of discourse and details. Information heavy but fairly easy to retrieve. Knowledge of Greek frequently assumed when Greek is used, but information useful for one who does not know Greek.
