A Sign In The Sky 

A suggestion that John Chrysostom wrote the Apocalypse 30 September 395.  Made by Nikolai Alexandrovich Morozov, an astronomer,  according to R. H. Charles  in his book, “Studies in the Apocalypse: Being Lectures Delivered before the University of London”.  A book worth reading.

A Third John 

A necessary connection to the Apocalypse.  How it became part of the bible.  Many did not think it belonged there.  John Chrysostom was one of them and he was in Ephesus when Jerome was finishing the Vulgate.  Astronomy points to Chrysostom as the writer of the Apocalypse according to Morozov.  There are other reasons.

A Bare Record 

in the first chapter of the Apocalypse.  The name John is mentioned two times in the third person and once in the first person.  John the Apostle knew “who bare record” and the seven churches.  John the Baptist knew the Lamb and the seven spirits but not the churches or Jesus.  John Chrysostom on the isle of Patmos at the beginning of the fifth century knew all of this including Jerome’s Latin translation of the bible.  Nicolaus Morosow based on astronomy pointed to Chrysostom as the writer of the Apocalypse.  All these dots can be connected in a reasonable way.

A Date 

link Chrysostom to the Apocalypse.  The astronomer is Morozow.  The date is 395.  Gibbon taught me not to trust dates.  Baur taught me that it was January 401 when Chrysostom arrived in  Ephesus to replace seven bishops.  It would take three months.  Charles taught me about Morozow.  I had already suspected Chrysostom.  He was the only notable John around when five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come.  They being the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire.   
Watch for more pieces that fit.  Blessed is the one who looks.
