This verse-by-verse exposition of the book of Revelation was not completed or published in Swedenborg’s lifetime; he stopped several chapters from the end and then started a completely new work on the same subject, which he published as Apocalypse Revealed (Revelation Unveiled).
This work includes detailed explanations of parallel passages from the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament as well as commentary on a number of other theological topics.
Volume 1 covers Revelation 1-4.
The Redesigned Standard Edition is a thirty-volume collection of the only complete edition of Swedenborg’s theological writings currently available from the Swedenborg Foundation. Originally translated and published in the early 1900s, the RSE casebound set was redesigned and printed in a more readable format under the direction of William R. Woofenden.
