    We are studying the Book of Revelation at church and have gotten to chapter 4. There is a lot of speculation as to whom or what the four beasts are. I would like to hear (or read as the case may be) what others think concerning this subject, especially since the four beasts are prominent throughout the Book of Revelation.

    Revelation 4:7 tells us

    "And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the thrid beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle."

    Where do you get the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John out of this??
