A Linguistic Approach to Revelation 19:11—20:6 and the Millennium Binding of Satan. Linguistic Biblical Studies 23. Leiden: Brill, 2022
This study argues that the establishment of the millennium binding of Satan and the vindication of the saints in Revelation 20:1–6 are cohesively linked with Jesus’s victorious battle in Revelation 19:11–21. The major implication of this analysis views both these events as consequent effects of Christ’s victory at the eschatological battle. Applying systemic functional linguistics and discourse analysis of cohesion, this study advances critical scholarship on the Book of Revelation by offering the first fully sustained answer to this frequently debated question regarding Satan’s binding from a modern linguistic approach.
Brill volumes are quite expensive, since their business model is focused on research libraries. However, if you want to attain this academic volume when it is released, here are a couple of suggestions:
1. If you live near a research library or seminary library you can check it out there. If the library does not have the volume, then contact the librarian to either have the library purchase a copy or acquire a copy through inter-library loan.
2. If you can afford it, you will be able to purchase it through Brill or Amazon.
3. I’ll eventually write a more general treatment of the topic that is accessible to the general audience.
