Re: SV: [revelation-list] Revelation 1:10
- Hi Georg,
A useful article on the question of the meaning of H KURIAKH HMERA in Rev
1:10 is found in NovT 43/3 (2001) 205-23: "The Use of Sunday for Meetings of
Believers in the New Testament" by S. R. Llewelyn. He provides a concise
survey of the options but personally prefers seeing Rev 1:10 as a reference
to the time when the seer had his spiritual experience, namely Sunday.
