My sense of John's use of the OT is that he is functioning like one of the
classical prophets and that he tends to pick up on OT prophecies and adapt them
to new circumstances. For instance, it seems in his last two chapters that he
is adapting Ezekiel's temple vision but re-orienting it and applying it to the
new Jerusalem rather than to a temple.
