      Twice John sees the world in a two part taxonomy of Jews and Gentiles: 7.1-9
      (144,000 from Israel and innumerable Gentiles) and 14.1-6 (144,000 on Mt
      Zion and a different angel proclaiming good news to the nations). The
      history of trying to make the two part taxonomy of how John sees the world
      into a three part taxonomy matching the way later Christian interpreters see
      the world shows clearly the ingenuity by which the the Bible treated as
      scripture can be made into the something nearly opposite to ancient texts
      treated as objects of historical investigation.
