Satan Cast Out

The center of Revelation is Revelation 12, where the Satan is cast out of heaven. The center of John, the literary center of John, which is between the two foot-washing narratives — Mary of Bethany and Jesus washing the feet of the disciples. The center of John is the triumphal entry where Jesus says, “I beheld Satan cast out of heaven.” That’s the axis of these two books, and that will become significant. They’re both describing the same event, but they’re describing it from different perspectives.

One is heaven and one is earth.
