P5 Intepreting Revelation 20:1-10 - A quick Outline of Revelation 19:11-20:15, with particular focus upon 20:1-10

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

For the past several days we have been exploring all of the major interpretive approaches to Revelation 20:1-10.  In this series we have covered the following:
1. Interpretive areas to consider when studying Revelation 20:1-10

2. Amillennialism and a Premillennialist Response

3. Postmillennialism and a Premillennialist response

4. Exploring different types of Premillennialism

In today's post I want to offer a brief outline of Revelation 20:1-10, with the previous posts operating as the background and preparation for the outline below.  If any reader is curious on where exactly I stand, they can look back at yesterday's post, where after some discussion I lay out four basic tenets of where I stand on the issue of Premillennialism.
