The Revelation of Jesus Christ . The Revelation of Jesus Christ is communicated to John of Patmos through prophetic visions. ( 1:1–9) John is instructed by the “one like a son of man” to write all that he hears and sees, from the prophetic visions, to Seven churches of Asia. ( 1:10–13)
Seven Signs Changing water into wine at Cana in John 2:1-11 – “the first of the signs” Healing the royal official’s son in Capernaum in John 4:46-54. Healing the paralytic at Bethesda in John 5:1-15. Feeding the 5000 in John 6:5-14. Jesus walking on water in John 6:16-24. Healing the man blind from birth in John 9:1-7.
Revelation 1:20 states that ” The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.” The comparison of a teacher to a star is scriptural.
Revelation is when something that was hidden becomes known. For many religious people revelation comes from God and reveals something about God. This is often used to describe the way God is revealed through a dream, a vision, a miracle , experience, or prophecy .
The earliest Christians maintained that Jesus was a human being who was made God – a god – a divine being. Later they ended up saying that Jesus was born to the union of God and a mortal because the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and that’s how she conceived Jesus , so Jesus literally had God as his father.
Using these methods, most scholars assume a date of birth between 6 and 4 BC, and that Jesus’ preaching began around AD 27–29 and lasted one to three years . They calculate the death of Jesus as having taken place between AD 30 and 36.
Jesus healing two blind men is a miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.
ἸΧΘΥΣ (ichthys), or also ἸΧΘΥϹ with a lunate sigma, is an backronym or acrostic for “Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς Θεοῦ Υἱὸς Σωτήρ”, Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr; contemporary Koine, which translates into English as ‘ Jesus Christ , Son of God, Savior’.
Death itself, the ultimate affront to humanity, was overcome by Jesus. He raised Jairus’ daughter ( Luke 8:49-56), the widow of Nain’s son ( Luke 7:11-17), and Lazarus (John 11:38-44). His healing ministry consisted of not only the sick, but also those who were dead.
Including the Spirit of the Lord, and the Spirits of wisdom, of understanding, of counsel, of might, of knowledge and of fear of the LORD, here are represented the seven Spirits , which are before the throne of God .
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church , Catholic ecclesiology professes the Catholic Church to be the “sole Church of Christ ” – i.e., the one true church defined as “one, holy, catholic , and apostolic” in the Four Marks of the Church in the Nicene Creed.

Scripture. This is perhaps the most important type of revelation for Christians. Christians believe that the Bible is different from any other book because it is God’s word or contains God’s words.
There are two types of revelation : General (or indirect) revelation – called ‘general’ or ‘indirect’ because it is available to everyone. Special (or direct) revelation – called ‘direct’ because it is revelation directly to an individual or sometimes a group.
There are several covenants in the Bible, but five covenants are crucial for understanding the story of the Bible and God’s redemptive plan: the Noahic Covenant , the Abrahamic Covenant , The Mosaic Covenant , the Davidic Covenant and the New Covenant .
