Even though the word “revelation” is mentioned once in the book of Revelation, it is used 44 times in the New Testament. Of those time, 26 times it is used as a verb and 18 times as a noun, and in the book of Revelation it is used as a noun, and as I mentioned earlier it is a singular noun, revelation of Christ.
Of the 18 times it is used,
8 times as revelation of the truth of God (1 Cor. 14:6, 26, 2 Cor. 12:1, 7, Gal. 1:12, 2:2, Eph. 1:17, 3:3)
2 times is for revelation of Christ first coming (Luke 2:32, Rom 16:25)
2 times as revelation of judgment (Rom. 2:5)
1 time as revelation of us as children of God (Rom. 8:19)
Six times in four books of the New Testament, the noun form of Revelation Apocalypsis is used, twice in the writings of Paul and three times in the writings of Peter and once by the Apostle John.
3 times other than the book of Revelation, it is used as a noun for the revelation of Jesus at His second coming. (1 Cor. 1:7. 2 Thes. 1:7, 1 Peter 1:7)
