Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 1:2

_ _ bare record of — “testified the word of God” in this book. Where we would say “testifies,” the ancients in epistolary communications use the past tense. The word of God constitutes his testimony; Revelation 1:3, “the words of this prophecy.”

_ _ the testimony of Jesus — “the Spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10).

_ _ and of all things that, etc. — The oldest manuscripts omit “and.” Translate, “whatsoever things he saw,” in apposition with “the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 1:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 1:2

Who hath testified — In the following book. The word of God — Given directly by God. And the testimony of Jesus — Which he hath left us, as the faithful and true witness. Whatsoever things he saw — In such a manner as was a full confirmation of the divine original of this book.
