Sat 091128 am Rev 1-4

Revelation 1
1.2 & 9  the Word of God and testimony of Jesus Christ... This is an interesting expression to be repeated here, 6.9, 20.4.
The "word of God" may refer to God the Father's word to Jesus Christ. "The testimony of Jesus" probably refers to the Lord Jesus' faithful communication of God's word to John (mainly through angels, messengers) who passed it on to his readers.  ----Dr. Constable's Notes on Revelation
