Apostle John

A fisherman by trade, John was among the first disciples to be called by Jesus (Matt 4:21-22; Mark 1:19-20) and always mentioned in the first group of four disciples in all of the lists of the Twelve (Matt 10:2; Mark 3:17; Luke 6:14; Acts 1:13)

Exiled on the island of Patmos, the apostle John was "in the Spirit on the Lord's day," a divinely inspired vision of this period of final judgment.

Given by God and revealed by His Son clothed in power and glory, Revelation is the apostle John's account of things which must come (Rev 1:1).
