People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:3


Re 13:3 I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death. The Greek says "slain". This deadly wound of the head was a deadly wound of the beast itself. See Re 13:12. This wound was given by the sword; that is, by war. See Re 13:14. It is in this verse suggested that the beast was restored after the wound by the efforts of the second beast first named in Re 13:11. The symbolism implies that a mortal wound was inflicted on the power represented by the beast; that when it was dead, or about to perish, its power was restored by the arts of the second beast. All the world wondered after the beast. Gave it their wonder and admiration.

Discussion for Revelation 13:3

  • be strong in Christ,let us run this race with endurance
  • Has anyone stopped to think that "beast " as it rises out of the sea. These are empires. Not individuals. I 'm thinking you will see a revived ottoman turk empire.. It died and is looking like it will be ready to pick up the pieces of the middle east as it revives. Or call it a revived eastern roman empire.. 5 toes? Try turkey. Syria. Babylon. Persia. Egypt. The EU has already come together for the western half.
  • Jessika for verse 3
    I m thinking that they wonder after the beast because he once ruled the Roman Empire and for ages he was gone and now he s back this might be reference to his deadly wound being healed I always thought they would recognize him from an ancient Bronze statue of one of the emperors and would wonder because he looks just like him the image of the Beast but I don t know I would like to know though

  • Carol graham for verse 3
    I think that the beast will be shot in the head and mortally wounded and then come back to life after 3 days.
  • Blackjohnny for verse 3
    Comatose for seven years, Israel's iconic former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is showing signs of "significant brain activity."

    The 84-year-old suffered a devastating stroke January 4, 2006, and a brain hemorrhage. He was presumed to be in a vegetative state. But on Monday Jan 28, 2013, a team of surprised neuroscientists and doctors said Sharon's brain appeared to respond when they showed him pictures of his family and had him listen to his son's voice. Doctors also used tactile stimuli to measure Sharon's brain reaction.

    Does this mean the man Israelis once dubbed the "Lion of God" could wake? Doctors have urged caution and are extremely skeptical.

    Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri revealed the name of the Messiah before he died! He was a renowned Mizrahi Haredi a teacher and highly respected master devoted to the Jewish faith devoting his entire life to the study of the Torah. A man who lived beyound 108 years, Kaduri revealed the name of Jesus as the Messiah in a note 1 year after his death. The Orthodox Rabbi also mentions the second coming of Jesus will occur shortly after Sharon's death. Sharon has yet to suc***b to his deadly stroke that has left him comatosed for over 7 years. The question begs itself, is Sharon the one whose head wound will be healed and everyone in the world will be amazed and follow him? If Rabbi Kaduri is correct in his revelation the Lord Jesus will appear to Israel shortly after Sharon's death. You can Youtube a short bio on Kaduri and perhaps ascertain the information on your own. We all have epiphanies and come across information unwillingly. My connection happened today, I was not searching for anything in particular, the Lord came to me like a thief, unexpectedly, and I typed in the verse of revelation and came to this page and site that I have never visited, and I thought why not share and reveal the information. God Bless.
