Revelation 1:7 needs special attention, since the verse can be regarded as an exegetical key verse in the entire book of Revelation. The intertextuality, intratextuality and a Christotelic reading of Revelation 1:7 prove that the verse should be interpreted within the framework of the preteristic view. Christ, the pierced one, who was inflicted by the inhabitants of the γή, will come as the judge against the apostate Jews. When the Jews realized the judgment executed by the vindicating Lord, they were too late to repent. For the realization of the universal messianic kingdom, the end of the old Jewish age in 70 AD was one of its prerequisites.
