The Antichrist (?)

Nero Claudius Cæsar Augustus Germanicus (December 15, 37 A.D. – June 9, 68 A.D.).

Ordered a genocidal persecution of Christians in Rome that led to St. Peter being crucified upside down and St. Paul's beheading.

(Here is the key; and anyone who has intelligence may work out the number of the beast. The number represents a man's name, and the numerical value of its letters is six hundred and sixty-six.)

Revelations 13:18

What makes you think it talks about Nero?

Sure, he was a bad guy, but I think the verse is speaking of much later in the history of the earth...and perhaps not a "person" but an idea or nation.

Nero was already dead by decades when John is thought to have written Revelations, but those who believe that 666 was code for Nero (like Irenaius) thought he was referring to that anti-christian spirit that Nero had.

Nero was brutal. He used Christians as backyard floodlights (i.e. human torches).

He killed Peter & Paul.

He called himself a god, so I could understand why John would be reminded of him and reference him when envisioning the future antichrist.
