" In reality, Jews have a lot of different dietary laws, they have an entirely different tradition of exegesis from Christianity (based on the Talmud)"

There are Jews who reject the Talmud, like Karites who's attitude toward Scriptural interpretation is fairly analogous to the Protestant concept of Sola Scriptira.

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.

The whole "Antichrist isn't in The Bible" meme is pretentious nit picky semantics.

Even if one were to conceded the originally Author intended it to be some Ancient ruler, fact remains they simply felt that Ancient ruler was what we today mean by The Antichrist.
