      what do you think is the significance of names and naming in the Book of
      Revelation, in relation particularly to 3:12, 14:11, 19:12, 22:4?


      Interestingly, earthly Jerusalem is never called "Jerusalem," even though she seems to appear often (e.g., Rev. 11:1-2; and, I believe, as the "great harlot," cp. Isa. 1:21; Jer 2:20; 3:1-6). This name (Jerusalem) is reserved for the "heavenly Jerusalem" which takes her place.
