Revelation 20:6 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

6. Blessed and holy &c.] He is sure of eternal blessedness, absolutely and indefeasibly consecrated to God. “Holy” refers to the relation to God into which this brings him, not to the foregoing faithfulness that is implied in his being admitted into it.

the second death ] See Rev 2:11, and Rev 20:14. Cf. Rom 6:9-10.

they shall be priests ] Cf. Rev 1:6, Rev 5:10.

of God and of Christ ] The strongest proof, perhaps, in the book of the doctrine of Christ’s coequal Deity. If we read these words in the light of St John’s Gospel, or of the Nicene Creed, they suggest no difficulty, but without the doctrine there taught, they make salvation to consist in the deadly sin which the Moslems call “association” the worshipping the creature by the side of the Creator. Notice, however, that the word “God” in this book always means the Father; and so throughout the N. T., with few exceptions.

thousand years ] We should probably read, “ the thousand years.”
