 Revelation: The Revelation of St John The Divine
Yes, "John" was the (popish/jewish) bishop of said churches from Ephesus, but so was Timothy whom Paul sent to Ephesus to guard against subversion by such fishers of men who baited with flattery and hooked them with lies, subverting with hypocrisy and partiality.
Albeit John shares many truths; But Paul reveals "a little leaven leveaneth the whole lump", and there's a little leaven in the "verily verily" gospel according to John, surnamed Mark, and also called one of the "sons of thunder" who moved the other ten to "indignation".
John is perhaps not as divine as many suppose when looking at all the evidence; Especially the slangs for 'john': victim, victimizer, toilet, pimp, and 'johnny law'.
