Learn the Revelation was created by James Kobzeff for those who desire to learn the Revelation.

James is an evangelical born-again Christian who received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior at the age of thirteen. But it wasn’t until many years later, when he started attending Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California pastored by Chuck Smith, that he truly began to grow as a Christian and therein developed a thirst to teach the word of God.

As a result, over the past fifty years, James has taught Sunday School, home Bible study groups, high school, and college-age youth groups, and for five years acted as senior pastor for a small congregation affiliated with Calvary Chapel in Silverton, Oregon (1980-1985).

Today, James attends Morningstar Community Church in Salem, Oregon, and since 1995, has taught Revelation as well as the book of Daniel at various times in their adult Bible study program.

This commentary and quizzes were written by James originally for those in his Bible study groups who had requested notes, and continues to be a work-in-progress.

James gleaned heavily from the teaching of Chuck Smith, Chuck Missler, J. Vernon McGee, John MacArthur, Henry M. Morris, John F. Walvoord, Matthew Henry, and Donald Grey Barnhouse in writing this commentary on Revelation.


James is the father of three married sons and the grandfather of seven grandchildren all living in Southern California. He maintains constant telephone contact and personally visits about 2-3 times per year.


James is a former realtor with over thirty years of experience. For most of those years he specialized in real estate investment properties and serviced rental income property sellers and real estate investors.

In 2000 he developed (and continues to own and maintain) ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Software — several software solutions designed to help real estate agents and investors create rental property cash flow analysis, profitability, and marketing reports.
