There are differences in style between Revelation and John's other writings, but they are insignificant and do not preclude one man from writing both. In fact, there are some striking parallels between Revelation and John's other works. Only John's Gospel and Revelation refer to Jesus Christ as the WORD ( 19:13 ; John 1:1 ). Revelation ( 1:7 ) and John's Gospel (19:37 ) translate Zechariah 12:10 differently from the Septuagint, but in agreement with each other. Only Revelation and the Gospel of John describe Jesus as the Lamb ( 5:6, 8 ; John 1:29 ) ; both describe Jesus as a witness (cf. 1:5 ; John 5:31, 32 ).

An excerpt from : the Author and Date section of the Revelation of JESUS CHRIST. page 1989, paragraph two. commentary by John MacArthur.
