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 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.
