The Woman in Revelations 12


Dear Brother Ron

Who is the woman in Revelation 12? Please give Scripture to go along with it.

James

Dear James

According to Albert Barnes' commentary, she represents the church. According to Barnes, the splendor of the sunlight is designed to denote the brightness of the gospel. The moon is designed to represent the comparatively feeble light of the Jewish dispensation. The fact that she stood upon the moon, or that it was under her feet, is designed to denote the superiority of the gospel to the Jewish dispensation. Her crown of twelve stars represents the 12 apostles (Matthew 19:28; Revelations 21:14).

Other references to the church as a woman can be found in Revelations 19:7 and Revelations 21:9. For further reference, see Isaiah 9:6, Psalms 87:6

Best always
Brother Ron
