Now, I've read Revelation. It describes a world where people are ruled by 
kings, practice slavery, keep records on scrolls, ride horses into battle, 
fight with swords, suffer from supernatural curses and get attacked by 
mythological creatures.

Mark, Revelation is largely viewed as being symbolic in nature.  Christians say 
John wrote down his visions of present/future day events in the words and 
understanding of his own day, and so this would obviously limit him.
