What happens next, in many interpretations, however, is funny.
Many traditions say that the book suddenly – and without warning – shifts topics and historical settings.
Berkof says that no one in church history has undertaken a thorough study of eschatology. The Reformers were fighting the salvation wars, thus, Calvin and Luther wrote a commentary on every book of the Bible but Revelation.
Luther didn’t even think Revelation should be in the Bible!
In each case, however, the shift is arbitrarily assigned based upon what the interpreter feels has not been fulfilled yet. al., Studies in the Apostolic Church (New York: 1902), pp.
HOWEVER, there is no indication from the text that a shift in audience or time of fulfillment is EVER to be made.

Not only will the internal and external piles of –largely unknown today- evidence surprised you, but his early date explanation puts the message of Revelation in the same vein as other messages that God gave people in similar situations. “A pre 70 AD date would make the purpose of the Revelation the same as was Isaiah’s prophecy — that is, to see the faithful people of God through the extremely difficult times ahead as THEIR then known WORLD was going to be shaken to its very foundation by the judgment of God against Babylon. Green, A Handbook of Church History from the Apostolic Era to the Dawn of the Reformation (London: 1904), p. • David Hill, New Testament Prophecy (Atlanta: John Knox, 1979), pp.
(Ovid Need Jr, Revelation: Date, Time and Purpose, 2001.) Revelation is introduced as something that “must” – not might – but which “MUST” soon take place. Garrow, Revelation (New Testament Readings; London: 1997).

The Gospel of John is mysteriously without an Olivet Discourse.
