A Date for the Apocalypse 

A bishop, John Chrysostom, is the writer according to the astronomer Nikolai Alexandrovich Morozov who sets the date as 395.  At this time five of the seven dynasties of Rome had fallen.  Chrysostom was in Ephesus at the end of the fourth century.  Would he not look for evidence of the most famous book of the bible?

A Writer Named John 

A confirmation that the Apostle wrote the Apocalypse was needed for it to be in the bible today.  Chrysostom was in Ephesus when Jerome was finishing the Vulgate.  Many didn’t believe it was written by the Apostle and therefore didn’t belong in the bible.  Thanks to Jerome we have it in the bible today.

A bishop extraordinaire was in Ephesus to replace seven corrupt bishops at the beginning of the fifth century.  John Chrysostom, who never quoted the Apocalypse, could not ignore what John the Apostle may have left there.  At that time Jerome could have been looking for a reliable copy of the Apocalypse.  He was finishing the Vulgate.

a reason to believe 

A Reasonable Explanation 

A history of the Apocalypse.  John Chrysostom was in Ephesus when Jerome was finishing the Vulgate.  It would become the official bible of the Church.  It would confirm once and for all that the Apocalypse belonged in the bible.  Before that the jury was out.  Chrysostom was just one of those who didn’t accept the Apocalypse.  What could be the reason?

A Brother on Patmos 

A third John who was in Ephesus when Jerome was finishing his Vulgate that included the Apocalypse.  At the time it was not clear if it would be.  Jerome had to be convinced that it was written by the Apostle.  John Chrysostom was in Ephesus replacing seven bishops at the beginning of the fifth century.
