Regarding the St. John the Divine Example, it's called the Revelation of St. John the Divine because it's St. John's revelation. As in the phrase, "I've had a revelation." Christ was revealing the future to St. John. Therefore it's John's Revelation.

The Antichrist example needs reworking, as to be fair it's not a settled matter in doctrine as to what "the antichrist" is (it is true that "many antichrists have come", but I'm not sure it's definitively not a character associated with The Beast in Revelation).

Furthermore, identifying 666 with Nero is just one theory, which is associated with the historicist interpretation of Revelation.

Reading it again, it probably doesn't need reworking wholesale, just cleaning up to get rid of the natter. I edited the 666 example.
