My thoughts on this are that everyone who has been born is in the book of life and everyone that has been born again is in the lambs book of life.

I don't believe there is any difference. The person that posted that in Wikepedia was doing so based on their doctrinal views.

My thoughts by context is that there is not a distinction, the Book of Life is mentioned once in the Old Testament, and there that those who are not righteous would be blotted
out of the Book of Life.

Its mentioned again in Philippians 3, in relationship to believers being recorded there, and then again in rev 3:5, again in relationship to believers, in Rev 17 its used of those

whose names are not in there the Beast has dominion over. and in Revelation 20. Those whose names are not written in the Book of Life are thrown into the Lake of Fire.


Since only John uses the expression the Lambs Book of Life and the expression 'Book of Life' here is what can be surmized. Those not found in the Book of Life are thrown into

the lake of Fire. those who are in the Book of Life get into heaven. Those in the lambs book of Life get into heaven, and avoid judgement. I'm not really seeing any distinction in

how this author uses both terms.
