Abstract

In this part of the book of Revelation, of a special significance is the picture of those slaughtered for the word of God (cap. 6), below the altar, an image that represents a liturgical vision. A new liturgical scene and a new hymn unity appear in chapter 7. There is described the sealing of God’s 144.000 chosen ones. We will present the hypothesis advanced by the researcher M. H. Shepherd Jr., of chapther 7’s drafting on the scheme of the initiation ceremony within the Paschal Liturgy, respectively of chapters 8-19 on the structure of the Easter Synax and Eucharist. In this part we will also analyze the liturgical and hymn unit from the book of Revelation, found in chapter 19. Hallelujah Doxology (Apoc 19, 1-8), in which references to martyrs appear (Apoc 19, 1-2), the four «Hallelujah» (Apoc 19, 1; 19, 3-4; 19, 6), an «Amen» (Apoc 19, 4), the exhortation addressed to all, young and old (Apoc 19, 5) and the comprehensive hymn (Apoc 19, 6-8) with its theological, Christological, and ecclesiological references, they make up the last and most important hymn unity of the book of Revelation.
