Revelation 11:7 introduces "a beast that comes up from the Abyss". This beast could be synonymous with the beast from the land (by some equated with Behemoth) or the beast from the sea (by many equated with Leviathan) spoken of in Revelation 13. Or it could collectively represent both. Or it could be a distinct enemy of the church and God.
What scholarship or Biblical analysis supports the position that this beast is a distinct and different being from the beasts of Revelation 13?
Also, if you know of scholarship that supports identifying it with one or both of those other beasts, can you cite it along with evidence or argument to contradict that scholarship?
