If You Have A Bible With The Words Of Christ In Red...

If you have a Bible w/ the words of Christ in red, then can you please tell me if Rev 22:13 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last" are in black or in red?

Which verson/translation is it? KJV? NKJV? NAB? NIV? Other?

Is that one verse quoted above different in your version in any way?

Thanks!

  • Here are some notes regarding this passage and the surrounding ones: Rev. 22:12–16 Jesus speaks (v. 16), promising to come soon (see vv. 7, 20), affirming his divine eternity (v. 13) and messianic authority (v. 16), and pronouncing the book's final of seven benedictions (v. 14; see note on 1:3). bringing my recompense. As the Divine Warrior of Isa. 62:10–63:6, Christ will come to repay everyone for what he has done, rewarding faithful servants and punishing every evildoer. “Recompense” (Gk. misthos, “wages, reward”) indicates degrees of reward for believers and punishment for unbelievers (cf. Luke 12:47–48; and 1 Cor. 3:14–15 with note).

    Rev. 22:13 the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last. See note on 21:6. Eternal life and lordship characterize God (1:8) and his Christ, who is coming soon (1:17; 2:8).

  • no, typically the red letters are just in the gospels (matthew, mark, luke and john)
    revelation is an account of a vision that john had while was imprisoned on the isle of patmos

  • elizabiza

    Jesus spoke to John in the revelation .... He kind of has to ... Revelation is about the coming of His Kingdom.

  • it is in mine (NIV), but in one of my dh's, its written in black (NRSV). also, the wording is a little different, sort of.. "i am the alpha and the omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.''
