I would be interested in seeing what dates other Study Bibles put on
these NT books. Anyone?
Bruce, I have read that Irenaeus is the ONLY source for the late dating
of Revelation. Other "sources" just quote him. John, in Rev, speaks of
Nero Caesar as still on the throne. He died in June 68. This, according
to a commentary by David Chilton. Another book lists several pages of
scholarly works, preferring the early dates.
I'll look into this further - I thought I once read a compelling case
that the "coming of the Lord" could mean coming in judgment via secondary
means, that is, not in person.
God bless you all!
