A Third John –

A  visit to Ephesus by John Chrysostom at the turn of the fifth century.  Jerome was finishing the Vugate which would include the Apocalypse.  At that time five of the seven dynasties of Rome had fallen.  Chrysostom replaced seven corrupt bishops and may have spent some time on the isle of Patmos.

a third revelation 

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.

A Third John – 

A companion in tribulation.  Chrysostom was in Ephesus replacing seven corrupt bishops.  He could have gone to Patmos for the word of God.  He must have known about Jerome who was translating the bible and that many believed the Apocalypse didn’t belong in the bible unless of course it was written by the Apostle.  He could find out.  


a conjecture 

A Prophesy Again

A book with three writers named John:  John who bare record, John to the seven churches, and John who am your brother.  Lots of unsettled questions: Who?, When?, and now Where?  Only the third John admits to being on the Isle of PatmosEusebius mentions six of the seven churches but never associates them with the Apocalypse.  Victorinus only mentions the seven churches Paul wrote to.  So why not speculate?   


a key number 

A Beast That Was, Is Not, And Yet To Come 

A chapter with numbers.  Ten horns, seven heads, five are fallen, and two beasts.  Babylon the Great ties them all together.  Good luck counting kings.  If you count dynasties, five had fallen when John Chrysostom was in Ephesus replacing seven corrupt bishops.  He is your brother on Patmos.
