896Simon J. Kistemaker and the early church on Nero
- Nov 17, 2007Hi folks, sorry to just parachute in here, but I try to stay on the
sidelines, like a third string quarterback holding the clipboard, as I
need to learn before I talk (at least my wife thinks so).
Anyway, Kistemaker makes the analysis that the identification of Nero
and 666, is not based on early church fathers but rather comes from
"W.G.Baines, The Number of the Beast in Revelation 13:18," Heythjourn
So my question is, why then do many people say that the early church
or part of it anyway, felt that Nero was indeed the Beast?
If you can give me any solid verifiable evidence to the early church
holding that view or at least portions of the church beleiving so, I
would much appreciate it and any further reading on the specific topic.
