This essay demonstrates that the account of the two witnesses in the eleventh chapter of the Apocalypse of John is carefully structured in a chiastic structure. Furthermore, it will demonstrate that the account of the two witnesses occupies a central role in the broader structure of the broader Apocalypse of John. In particular, the account of the two witnesses foreshadows both the themes and the structure of the second half of the Apocalypse of John. These perspectives open up new lenses through which the message of the Apocalypse may be analyzed and understood.
