a prophecy again 

A Second John Who Ate The Book 

A reasonable explanation for the three Johns of the Apocalypse.  John the Baptist is the first who bare record.  John the Apostle is the second to the seven churches.  John Chrysostom is the third who was in Ephesus just before Jerome defined the bible that would become the official bible of the Church.  



a speculation 

A Reasonable Explanation 

A question not addressed.  Why does John introduce himself three times?  He was asked to “prophesy again”.  That could be another John.  That’s two.  Why not three?  Multiple writers have been suggested by multiple commentaries.  Both John the Baptist and John Chrysostom have been suggested.
