About Revelation 1-5 (Volume 52a), Revelation 6-16 (Volume 52b) and Revelation 17-22 (Volume 52c):
In this 3-volume set, David Aune extensively annotates the translation of the text with his illuminating insights into the variant readings and the nuances of every significant word. He presents a comprehensive inventory and evaluation of all categories of textual evidence, and an exhaustive assessment of the peculiarities of the syntax in the Greek in the introduction. A wide-ranging investigation of possible sources in the ancient cultural traditions reflected in the literature of the Hebrew Bible, Second Temple Judaism, and the wider ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman world is also included with the verse-by-verse commentary. Each chapter receives a minutely expanded outline and focuses on the total book implications of such matters as: the use of chronological eschatological visions, the recurring sets of seven, the paired angelic revelations beginning in 17:1 and ending in 21:9, the scenes in the Heavenly Throne-room with their hymns, and possible connections between the scrolls in Chapters 5 and 10.
