Wesley's Notes for Revelation 14:20


14:20 And the winepress was trodden - By the Son of God, #Rev 19:15|. Without the city - Jerusalem. They to whom St. John writes, when a man said, The city, immediately understood this. And blood came out of the winepress, even to the horses' bridles - So deep at its first flowing from the winepress! One thousand six hundred furlongs - So far! at least two hundred miles, through the whole land of Palestine.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 14:20


Re 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city. The city, whenever it is not shown to be a wicked city, is Jerusalem, the Apocalyptic symbol of the Church. These judgments are "without" the church, judgments upon the world. And blood came out of the winepress. This is what John saw. The pressed juice of the grapes ran out red like blood, and ran in a mighty stream, deep as the bridle bits of the horses, a thousand [and] six hundred furlongs; about 200 miles. There has been much discussion concerning what this distance signifies. Some have cited the fact that Palestine is about 200 miles long, and held that a fearful carnage in that country is predicted. Others have noted the fact that Italy is about 200 miles wide, and held that this country is to be the scene of a terrible conflict. In my opinion, the whole is symbolic of the terrible judgments of the wicked in that day. The figure, 40 x 40, or 4 x 4, multiplied by 10 x 10, imply the universality of the judgment. The "four" quarters, the "four" winds, the "four" corners of the earth are often mentioned, and "four" is held to be an Apocalyptical symbol of the earth, while ten, like seven, is a perfect, or sacred number.
