Of primary concern in the exegesis of Revelation 20, and in the millennial debate that surrounds it, is interpretation of the “first resurrection” portrayed in verses 4-6. While premillennialists understand this to refer to the first stage of the general bodily resurrection, most amillennialists see this as representing believers who have died and have entered the intermediate state in heaven while they await the final consummation. This paper aims to show that the amillennial understanding of the “first resurrection” has strong support from both the immediate and the broader context of Revelation 20.
