      Therefore, O faithful Christian, search for truth, hear truth,
      learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth,
      defend the truth till death.

      This does give useful information, as does the comment on 13.18 in the
      main text.

      However, as with elsewhere in this commentary, I found I was rather
      overwhelmed with a range of possibilities and examples from the
      ancient world, without much help on which are most relevant to the
      text of Revelation and why,

      The reason why I like reading Bauckham on this is that he gives clear
      reasons as to why *this* use of gematria is relevant to the text,
      whereas *that* use might not be.
