A dynasty. Everyone is looking for kings and not dynasties. Even historians have had trouble counting them but there were seven. Five had already fallen by the end of the forth century. Who could make a statement like that? John Chrysostom who was in Ephesus replacing seven bishops. The third John of the Apocalypse. The second was the Apostle. The first was the Baptist. Watch for more pieces that fit. Blessed is the one who looks.
