Re: The 4th horseman?
What do you guys think of this: Granted by the time we get to 6:1-2, it is only the saints who will be "given" anything, and who are encouraged to "overcome", and who are related to the color "white", and promised "crowns", but here we see something different. In the seven letters, those who overcome will be given something, whereas here the first rider is given something in order to overcome. The saints aren't given crowns in order to overcome: when they overcome they are given crowns. What are your thoughts on this difference? I think it points away from the first rider being the saints proclaiming the gospel, but what do you think?
