New Defender's Study Bible Notes

The original image will be set up in the temple at Jerusalem (Matthew 24:24; II Thessalonians 2:4). Perhaps in some way (no doubt easily achieved in an age of electronically controlled and transmitted information), the loyalty of each household to the beast and his image can be monitored at a central data bank.
