THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on The Apocalypse of St. John the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

1:8 I am Alpha and Omega: These are the names of the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, and signify the same as what follows: The beginning and the end: the first cause and last end of all beings: who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. . .These words signify the true God only, and are here applied to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is to come again to judge the living and the dead.
