The Book of Revelation, also called Revelation to John, Apocalypse of John (pronounced, from Greek Αποκαλυψις Ιωαννου, Apokalupsis Iōannou), and Revelation of Jesus Christ is the last canonical book of the New Testament in the Christian Bible. It is the only biblical book that is wholly composed of apocalyptic literature. Other apocalypses popular in the early Christian era did not achieve canonical status, except for 2 Esdras (Apocalypse of Ezra), which is canonical in the Russian Orthodox and Ethiopian Orthodox Churches.
