I'm building an Oracle for an upcoming campaign and I'm somewhat new to Pathfinder. If you The explanation of mysteries says I get bonus spells every other level. However, I also get another revelation at the same levels. Do I get both a bonus spell and another revelation at 2, 4, 6, etc. or do I only get the bonus spell?

For example, let's say I start out with the Life mystery and choose to get Channel at level 1. At level 2, do I get only Detect Undead or do I get Detect Undead and Energy Body (for example)?

From the 'revelations' description:

At 1st level, 3rd level, and every four levels thereafter (7th, 11th, and so on), an oracle uncovers a new secret about her mystery that grants her powers and abilities.

At level 2 you would normally only get Detect Undead, because you don't normally get revelations every other level starting at level 2.

If you did get revelations at those levels by house rule or something, you would get both. You certainly can get more than one class feature per level, you just don't normally do so in theis specific case.

No.

The bonus spells are labelled as Mystery Spell on the Oracle's Table.

Your Mystery is chosen at first level, and you also learn a Revelation at same level. But after that you will have to follow the table to see when you gain another, mystery/bonus spells every even levels (2, 4, 6, 8, etc), and new revelations at 3rd and every four levels after 3rd (1, 3, 7, 11, 15, and 19).

If you look closely, you will never obtan a bonus spell and revelation at the same level, but that's designed like that, so you have few levels were you class will "give you nothing, but spells".

If you do think you need more revelations, you can look up the feat Extra Revelation, or the Ring of Revelation.
