No website yet. I enjoy learning all I can about our LORD. And other events of God’s Kingdom. And to go deeper into His word. I enjoyed what was written about John.

I’m fascinated with the Gospel of John. It’s so incredibly profound, it talks right into my heart. I think it’s a cherry on top of the Bible cake. I like your article, its good to learn more about this man. unbelievable to think he used to be a fisherman and probably illiterate.

Jack Wellman February 29, 2016 at 7:05 pm

Amen to John’s Gospel. Thank you. This is, in my opinion, the most powerful gospel to witness to Mormans, JW’s, and Muslims because it proves the divinity of Christ and the eternality of Christ.

Previously, I had only suspected that John the Apostle and John the Revelator were the same man. I’m glad to have the story of him being boiled in oil further substantiated. Any man who could come out of that treatment unharmed(!) would be looked on by the Roman authorities as a very dangerous man indeed; hence the Patmos exile.
John’s version of the Good News is my favorite. His straight-forward portrayal of Jesus Christ and His sayings is richly uplifting and encouraging.

This is the beloved disciple that is still among us on earth, working and waiting for our Lord’s return.

Jack Wellman November 19, 2017 at 7:55 am

Hello Andrei. Are you saying the Apostle John is still among us on earth? Can you explain that? thank you.

Hello Andrei. Are you saying the Apostle John is still among us on earth? Can you explain that? thank you.

John April 3, 2019 at 6:33 pm

I feel very close to him. I’m a fisherman, I was the local fish and chip van man and I have been drenched in 180+ degree oil and remain unharmed or scared. My face for sprayed in hot oil and I was dreading the next day! I looked in the mirror in amazement!! Not a mark, not a blemish.
After reading this. I feel almost at one.
My family tree dates back to the Romans.

You might enjoy a new book due out by Christmas called “My Neighbor John” which explores this possibility in a novel format.

John Dean September 4, 2018 at 4:57 am

Yes, I can assure you he is here.


Jack Wellman September 4, 2018 at 11:44 am

I can assure all the readers that John is not here on earth but he is with the Lord. John is human and cannot live in a body for over 2,000 years.

Tammy J. November 25, 2018 at 11:16 pm

To say it isn’t possible would be placing limits on God. I don’t think it is likely, but I do believe it’s possible.

Jack Wellman November 26, 2018 at 8:57 am

John was just a man. Men don’t live for thousands of years. God made us live in a range from 60-70 years of age, so says the Scripture, so it is not only not likely but impossible for a human to live physically for over 2,000 years. I stand by my statement.

Emmanuel December 15, 2019 at 4:40 pm

Yes I believe it is possible, the Bible says we are spirit, fisical prove blood. If john the Baptist came in the spirit of alijah, then they are many who are sent in the same spirit of john the beloved. So I believe john is still on earth means love

Sharon C June 19, 2020 at 7:44 am

God did not make us to live 60-70 years. That may be the average age now, but that is a result of sin, not God’s design intent. We know this by looking at the age of Adam (930 yrs), Methuselah (969 yrs), Noah (950 yrs), etc. Because of sin, the human life span has continued to decrease. This is not what God wanted for His people. We have to remember that we (not even scholars) do not have the capacity to fully understand everything. Our understanding is dim.

Dannie L. Jones December 12, 2018 at 2:15 pm

I’ve been looking at Rev. 10:9-11 my thoughts are John will be one of the two witnesses in the last days think about it

Bruce December 28, 2018 at 11:49 am

Adam lived for 930 years. Others lived for well over 60-70 years. Some science claims the body is meant to persist. “With God, nothing is impossible.” Other men in scripture stood in fire, unscathed. While remarkable, I’d have to admit, even if reluctantly, such would have to be possible.

Loved the story about the oil. Wouldn’t mind source(s).

Vaafuti Filipo March 1, 2019 at 2:36 pm

I want to say thank you for this material, I was able to know how the apostle John died.I have one request, if you able to send me all articles about how the twelve disciples and other saints’ death please. I’m interested to read and study.
Thank you
Vaafuti Filipo.

Paul427 August 27, 2019 at 6:59 am

If John becomes one of the two witnesses in the last days, he will indeed suffer death and then be raised from the dead.

Dianne October 12, 2019 at 12:04 pm

I too believe that John can visit those in need.

Zeke Zerkel January 25, 2021 at 5:26 pm

I would like to see some Biblical evidence that the Apostle John is the writer of Revelation. Assumptions, speculations & reasonings don’t work.
Can’t we leave it alone and admit “author unknown” just like Hebrews?


Jack Wellman January 25, 2021 at 6:58 pm

There is no mystery about who wrote the Book of Revelation and there is no reason to assume or speculate because the Bible is crystal clear, if you will read it Zeke. We don’t have to “leave it alone.” The Word of God itself shows this as the Apostle John wrote, ” The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw” (Rev 1:1-2). Can you not read where it says “He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw,” so the Apostle John is 100% identified in the Book of Revelation. I suggest you buy a good study Bible, but read the Word itself because the Word of God tells us who wrote the Book of Revelation, as he recorded the very words Jesus gave Him. As for the Book of Hebrews, we don’t know for certain and we’ve said as much elsewhere on this website. Thank you Zeke.

Thank you very much David; refreshing to read!

Jack Wellman December 15, 2019 at 5:05 pm

Hello Emmanuel. Are you saying that John the Apostle is still on earth? Jesus never said John will not die, so what do you mean sir? Thank you.

Jack Wellman June 19, 2020 at 8:45 am

Hello Sharon. I wrote the very same thing in this article at https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-and-why-did-people-in-the-bible-live-so-long/ That is what I thought too, so we are in agreement. I know God did not intend us or make us to live 60-70 years old only.
