Today in CCD, we were reading our bibles (new American version). As I was flipping through the pages of revelation, I noticed there was a section that I have never seen before. I apologize as I do not remember the chapter but it could be either 17 or 18, the section was titled “the meaning of the whore and the beast”. It started out with something along the lines of “I was amazed at her. The angel asked ‘why are you amazed? I will show you what this vision means’” after that, the angel told the author, presumably John, that the empire once was but is now fallen, then saying that it was pagan Rome. The angel actually told him these things according to this paragraph. Forgive me, because I’m certainly not well read in terms of scripture, but I certainly don’t remember this being in revelation. Can someone help me, I believe it says in the last chapters of revelation: “if anyone adds to this book, let his name be blotted out of the book of life”.
Again I’m not an expert on the Bible so I may be completely wrong.
