Question: Just a comment. The woman in Revelation 12 is Israel (the sun is Jacob, the moon is Jacob's wife, and the 12 stars are the 12 tribes of Israel; see Gen 37:9-10). The woman in Revelation 17 is based on many nations, fornication here is the idolatry of images (Israel commited fornication by serving other gods), the Catholic church whom have many images and mostly established in every nations (serving Mary and others) seems to fit these descriptions. As such, this is the new Babylon of the last times.

Answer: Thank you for your comment. You may be correct, but we are sceptical of this interpretation. We invite others to post their comments.
