What does Apocalypse mean?

How is the word "Apocalypse" related to the book of Revelation?

Thanks for asking a question on

The word "Apocalypse" comes from the Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokalupsis

Apokalupsis means to reveal or a revelation. So in Revelation 1:1 when John says: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him the word "revelation" is the word, in the original Greek, apokalupsis. That's how the book of "Revelation" got its name.

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless,
