Revelation of John 12

And there was; that is, there had been previously for the passage 7-13, seems introduced as a narrative of the origin of the hostility manifested by the dragon against the woman and her son.

The narrative of the persecutions of the woman, which had been left at v. 7, to explain the preceding circumstances in the history of the dragon, is now resumed.—A time, times, and a half; a year, two years, and a half; that is, three years and a half,—still another mode of varying the expression of the period already repeatedly designated in different forms. (11:2, 3, 12:6.)
