One of the OG’s (read 12 Disciples), John is now an old man incarcerated on the Island of Patmos (think Alcatraz). Knowing that he doesn’t have much time left, he’s ready to share his incredible story of learning to trust in Jesus, not just as a good man, but as the Messiah.
Imagine you’re an anchor with CNN or Fox—or whichever left or right leaning news station you get your junk…I mean news from today—and you’ve scooped the interview of a lifetime: You get to conduct the exclusive interview with John the “Revelator,” the last living disciple of Jesus of Nazareth.
You already know that Peter has been crucified upside down, Paul has been beheaded outside the city of Rome, and all of the original disciples have met untimely deaths. Infact, you’re also aware that Jerusalem has been besieged and the temple, the center of Jewish faith, has been razed to the ground.
Aware that this interview is taking place in a remote, dank, and dark prison on the Island of Patmos, surrounded by Roman guards, what would your conversation be like? What questions would you ask? I have an idea, but I’ll share it on Sunday!
