Abstract

The eschatological meaning of Sion as background to the theology of the book of Revelation
The core of the theology of the Book of Revelation focuses on the kingship of God. His kingship should be established on earth as it is in heaven. According to the Old Testament eschatological traditions God's kingship is linked with the Davidic dynasty by way of application. And the Davidic kingship is very much focused on Sion and Jerusalem. Through a theological review of the Old Testament meaning of the place and function of Sion within eschatology, linked up with God’s kingship, a necessary background for the theology of the Book of Revelation is sketched.
