“Time and Martyrdom,” Revelation 6:9-11

The fifth and sixth seals of Revelation, on first glance, show us martyrdom and cosmic turmoil, the death of saints and stars falling out of the sky with men, women and children running to hide in caves. What do we make of all this? The question is, what do we see about Jesus in it? What are the martyrs and the heavens telling us about Jesus. Often we study Revelation for the time table, but John told us that it is not about  “when” it’s about “Who”.
