SPECULATION ON the location of the seven mountains of Revelation 17:9 has led prophecy scholars to conclude that “the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth” must be a city with seven hills, like Rome. There is a better explanation.
We look at the Book of 1 Enoch to show that Jews of Jesus’ day sometimes described angels as mountains. Given that the mountains are the seven heads of the Beast, and “also seven kings,” we are looking at supernatural entities—just as we discussed last week.
Toward the end of this week’s study, we speculate on the identity of the three horns uprooted by the little horn of Daniel 7, who scholars generally agree is the Antichrist. More on that next week!
