Are you sure about this Dal? You now have your answer below.

A. The Significance of the Book (1:1a-b)

The book is said to be a "revelation," an unveiling. Some years ago, the city of Chicago was given an original sculpture by Pablo Picasso to adorn the plaza outside the new city hall. As the statue was being erected, it was heavily screened from the curious gaze of the passersby. When it was finished, it stood in the plaza thickly veiled. The day came when Mayor Daley unveiled the statue to the astonished gaze of Chicago and the world. There it stood in all its glory, the latest offering at the altar of art, Chicago's own gigantic Picasso. What Mayor Daley did for Chicago when he unveiled the statue, the book of Revelation does for us. It draws aside the veil.

1. The Person of Christ Unveiled (1:1a)

John tells us that this book is the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him. When Jesus came to earth the first time, it was in meekness, with His glory veiled. He came to be "obedient unto death, even the death of the cross" (Phil. 2:8). He was God manifest in flesh, and He showed it in a thousand ways that only the eye of faith could recognize. James, for example, brought up in the same Nazareth home with Jesus, failed to recognize Him as the Son of God. Jesus was perfect in character, perfect in conduct, in conversation. He was deity in humanity, yet was unknown as such to the children who shared that Nazareth home! His chosen disciples themselves only half believed Him. The world was so blind to who He was that it offered Him a cattle shed for His birth and a cross for His death.

One day. however. He is coming back with His glory unveiled to smash the opposition of the world and to wield a scepter of iron. He is coming back in pomp and power to reign, backed by the hosts of heaven. His deity, manifest even now to the eye of faith, will blaze forth like flaming lightning then. In the book of Revelation, the Person of Christ is unveiled, and we are given view after view of that glorious Man who fills all heaven with His praise.

My bad! They do have it. In fact, they have two bundles; one with commentaries only and another one with commentaries, sermon outlines, people of the Bible, study helps and more by the author. Maybe someday Logos will have ease of access to certain resources. It seems they're the only ones who struggle getting full access to a lot of things. I guess being the best in the business is a curse sometimes :(

Could you send the links to these “completion bundles”?  I couldn’t find them

They are competition bundles, not completion bundles. You won't find them on the Logos website.

Forum rules don't allow me to post the link here; but go to the competition website (WS) and type John Phillips on their search engine and the two bundles should come up in the search results, along with other resources by the same author :)

I would still like to hear from Faithlife and see why they excluded this volume and if they can add it to the collection.

It's probably a copyright issue or something like that 😐

But it would be nice for Faithlife to respond to the question. I have the set (with Revelation) in the other bible software that I use (OT) and it is also part of the John Phillips collection as sold by two other well known bible software companies. So seems a bit odd that Logos is missing the volume.

I'm not sure how often Faithlife follows the forums, so the person who has the answer to your question, may not even know it's been asked.

John Phillips Commentary Series (26 vols.) has gone back to "under development " . Hope they'll include it.

I doubt that they follow them at 6.23 am Bellingham time on a Saturday or 5.11 am on a Monday which is when two of the posts were made

Well that sucks! Maybe 1) They are trying to figure out what to do about the missing volume or 2) they lost customers for not having the missing volume :(
