We come in this twenty-second teaching part to a second beast which John saw coming up out of the earth. Who is this second beast, and what shall be his function and office? How does his activity correlate to the person of the first beast? What is the image that John beheld, speaking and causing as many as would not worship the image to be killed? Then there’s mention made of a mark, which all men shall be made to receive and without which no man might buy or sell unless they have this mark. What is the number of his name and the wisdom needed for understanding? We discuss all of these questions in this teaching and turn to the Scriptures to shed precious light on the answers.
