Revelation follows the precedent set by Daniel (Introduction, pg. 3).

“What had opened [Luther’s] eyes, under God, to the truth and authenticity of Revelation was his reading of the Book of Daniel. Suddenly everything fell into place, and from that moment on, by his comparing Scripture with Scripture, the Book of Revelation governed Luther’s entire thinking and theology, as his preface (vorhede) to Revelation in his 1534 Bible testifies.”
