Russian Icon - St. John, the Apostle and Evangelist

Saint John the Apostle ​and Evangelist ​(c. AD 6-100) was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus who, according to the Christian tradition, outlived the remaining apostles and was the only one to die of natural causes. The Church Fathers considered him the same person as John the Evangelist, John of Patmos, John the Elder and the Beloved Disciple, although modern theologians and scholars have not formed a consensus on the relative identities of these men. The traditions of most Christian denominations have held that John the Apostle is the author of the Gospel of John and four other books of the New Testament — the three Epistles of John and the Book of Revelation.
