Why did the Bible stop at Revelations?

I mean why didn't anyone keep writing or whatever you want to call it? I have just been trying to learn more lately and this is one of the questions that I have been pondering.

  • Because if it kept on going indefinitely everyone would have seen it for the farce it is.

  • I imagine it is the same reason the Mayans stopped with their calender stone.

  • it stops at revelations cause thats the end. the end of days and after that it doesnt matter about anything else cause god will reign on earth. (or so i learned)

  • Well, some believe it didn't end with Revelations... You could see the Quran as the last revelation.... Muslims do, although many Christians aren't so knowledgeable about Islam or the Quran....
    And then there are those (Mormons) who believe that the Book of Mormon written by Joseph Smith after he found the Golden Tablets is another revelation...
    Its all a matter of personal opinion/belief...

  • People are still writing about their experiences today.. History is always being written whether it is a book or a personal journal or diary. It is still being written.
    Its just that the Holy Scriptures ended in Revelation. God has not stopped talking or doing His will and purposes on the earth!

  • Because the Revelation marks the end, just as Genesis is the beginning.

  • What more could you add after Revelation? I think the entire story has been it's a waiting game...

  • Probably because it seemed like a good point to wrap up. It's a book written by humans, for humans. Why would anyone read past the end of the world?
