Nero = 666?

I don’t understand how people think 666 is in reference to Nero when the book of revelation was written 30 years after his death.

  1. I would imagine that the people who believe that “666” applies to Nero do NOT believe Revelation was written 30 years after his death.

    For example, this website has a list referring to many scholars/teachers/authors who date the book earlier: https://www.preteristarchive.com/BibleStudies/ApocalypseCommentaries/Dating/Early/index.html

    And, yes, the design of the website is quite outdated. 🙂

    I remember having to date the book when I was in a Bible School.

    We learned the various reasons for the different approaches.

    At the time I decided on a later date.

    Now I am more open to an earlier date.

    The interpretation of Revelation can be very much effected by the date it was written.
