Around the Throne

This was the hardest diagram for me yet (of the now five I’ve posted). What is most obvious is that this heavenly vision is focused around the thrones around the throne (since some form of throne is used nine times in these five and a half verses). I’ll aim to finish the rest of chapter four next week.

My favorite thing to do for Bible study is diagram the sentences, in the original language when possible. Here’s the first three verses of the next paragraph I’m preaching in Revelation, Christ’s message to the angel of the church in Philadelphia.
