@JonEricson - "Is that more or less what you were looking to have answered?" - Absolutely.

comment Are there any rules on which things in Revelation must be interpreted literally and which symbolically?
I understand your excitement about these similarities and parallels. In fact, I myself tend to stand on the side of this view. However, what I am after here is a critical and scientific approach rather than a theological one. As long as these two prophets are not explicitly named Moses and Elijah in the book of Revelation itself, we can only hold it as one of the possible theories.

added two long dashes to enclose the parenthetical statement that starts with "like" and ends with "(Revelation 7:13-14)"

Do you base your conclusion that the two witnesses in Revelation are Elijah and Moses solely on similarities of the miracles performed? How is the chart that you have posted here a hermeneutics in the first place? It looks to me that it is merely a representation of your own interpretation of some characters in Revelation based on some similarities found in the Old Testament. One can agree or disagree with those similarities, but how is this hermeneutics?

comment Does Revelation 21:9-11 equate the Bride of the Lamb with the City Jerusalem?
I am not sure of this equation being fully supported by hermeneutics, but I am definitely familiar with such Christian teaching, according to which the New Jerusalem is just another reference to the Bride of Christ.

comment Romans 16:7 : “fellowprisoners” in the book of Romans?!
"Could he have been imprisoned in Corinth and was referring to Andronicus and Junias as his "fellow prisoners" in Rome?" - If he was then he had surely been released by the time he was writing Romans as in Rom. 15:25 he says that he is going to Jerusalem to serve saints. But then again it looks very strange that Luke decided not to say a word about that imprisonment.
