A Strange Beginning 

in the Apocalypse.  Why is John mentioned three times?  Has anyone addressed this in a reasonable way?  Could they actually be three different people all named John?  Victorinus and Eusebius gives us reason to believe that.  Victorinus in his commentary doesn’t mention Antipas or the seven churches.  He does mention the seven churches Paul wrote to.  Eusebius doesn’t mention Antipas.  He does mention six of the seven churches but doesn’t associate them with the Apocalypse. Both may be looking at the first version written by John the Baptist.
