The book of Revelation may be an excellent example of how the New Testament was latent in the Old Testament and the Old Testament is revealed in the New Testament (Dei Verbum, n. 16). When examining three texts that have a clear Christological contents taken from the initial dialogue and the principal corpus, we observe that the numerous titles that the author of the Revelation attributes to Christ have their origin in similar attributions in the Old Testament that are applied directly to God. In this way a Theocentric Christology is discovered, based on the way in which the Old Testament texts are adapted to the new vision. The event of Jesus is the key to understanding the Old Testament, while the latter also illuminates our comprehension of the former.
