Abstract This article explores the reuse of Exodus traditions in the book od Revelation, identifying the author's numerous allusions to Israel's decisive event and examining them in the light of the larger theological and social reality that the Apocalypse addresses. Ultimately, this article argues that the Dreizeitenformel (Exod 3:14) is an interpretive key to understanding the Apocalypse and its message in regard to how the faithful ought to react in the face of an oppressive Roman government and ideology.
