Dave: The end times! Revelation 17:9-10 says, ‚ÄúThis calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.”

Jeff: What are these seven hills and seven kings?

Dave: As Kenneth Gentry points out, “The first seven Caesars of Rome are Julius, Augustus, Tiberius, Gaius, Claudius, Nero, and Galba.”

Jeff: Whoa – Notice that Nero was the sixth Caesar and that he was alive and possibly Caesar even when Revelation was written.

Dave: And Revelation 17 said the sixth King was alive at that time!

Jeff: Plus, Galba, the seventh Caesar, only reigned for seven months.

Dave: And Rev 17 says the seventh one will be for “only a little while.”

Jeff: Also of note is that Revelation 17 refers to the seven hills that represent seven Kings. Rome has seven famous hills (*Even Wikipedia notes them, calling their article The Seven Hills of Rome.)

Dave: Just like the Bible says.
