A First Coming 

A kingdom at hand.  The time was near.  John the Baptist knew the Lamb, a word used 27 times in the Apocalypse.  He wrote the first one.  Later John the apostle added Jesus and the seven churches.  He knew about the followers of John the Baptist in Ephesus.  There must be a third John.

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.
