Abstract El artículo explora el problema de la autoría del libro de Apocalipsis y el impacto que tiene en la interpretación del documento, particularmente en algunos de sus lugares más cruciales. Se revisa la literatura sobre el tema y se analizan detalladamente todas las posibles soluciones a la luz de la evidencia disponible. En este contexto, se evalúan los argumentos usados comúnmente para rechazar la autoría del apóstol Juan. Como resultado, se propone dejar la puerta abierta a investigaciones más profundas sobre el tema, sin rechazar la viabilidad de un origen apostólico del Apocalipsis.

The article explores the issue of Revelation’s authorship and the impact it has on the interpretation of the document, particularly some of its most crucial places. The Revelation literature on the topic is reviewed and all the avenues so far advanced to solve the riddle are discussed at length in the light of the evidence available. In this context, the standard arguments against John the Apostle as an authorial option are pondered. As a result of his quest, the author of the article proposes to leave the door open to further research on the topic without rejecting the viability of an Apostolic origin of the Apocalypse.
