Bali travel guide for Ps. This somewhat awkward combination of ideas, as well as the skipping over of Jesus’s ministry and death and the most peculiar conceptualization of the resurrection-ascension as a forcible snatching of Jesus away to God and his throne Rev. b, calls for some explanation. How are we to explain these things? The answer is most probably found in the realization that the action remains strictly astronomical until verse Only there does the scene shift from the heavens to the earth, and the focus from that point onward is the woman rather than the male child. What therefore John sees in verse is apparently still part of the heavenly nativity play marking Jesus’s birth. Consequently, the reason that the male child’s snatching to God’s throne immediately follows the birth is presumably that this is how the drama marking the Messiah’s birth unfolded in the heavens. In other words, the comet baby, having descended to the point where it was clearly below Virgo’s belly and therefore was born, continued to move down toward the sunlight and the horizon, quickly disappearing from the predawn sky.
