Signs of the Times: The Matrix of Meanings in Revelation 2 – 3 is an exegetical study of the local references in chapters two and three of the Book of Revelation. The book presents that the revelations and messages to the seven churches of Asia Minor by John are essentially contextual and specifically local; meaningful only for the Christians of the first-century A.D. located in these seven churches. Any future expectations in the Book of Revelation are imminently relevant for these seven churches as their prevailing historical conditions predispose. The underlying postulation is that, John, through a revelation of Jesus Christ, was exposing the signs of the times in these seven churches that were either plaguing or needing redressal of the situations they were in during the late first-century A.D. in Asia Minor.
