The Second Horseman of the Αpocalypse
The allegory of war

“When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.” And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from Earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.” (Revelation 6:3–4).

The second horseman with the sword and the red horse represent War and the blood that is to be spilled.
