St. John, the apostle and evangelist, was a native of Bethsaida, in Galilee, and son of Zebedee and Salome. It is said that he was about 25 years of age when he began to follow our Lord; he was his beloved disciple and friend. It is stated by Irenæus, Eusebius, and Origen, that after the destruction of Jerusalem, he went into Asia, and founded the churches of Smyrna, Thvatira, Pergamos, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. During the persecution of Domitian (A.D. 59,) he suffered much, and was banished to Patmos, where he wrote the Apocalypse ; but was afterwards recalled. He lived to a great age, and died at Ephesis. The style of St. John is simple and por. spicuous; and, as Mr. Blackwall, in his Sacred Classics, says, "h, reaches to the very heaven of heavens in the sublimity of his notions.” This Gospel is enriched with several discourses and miracles of Christ, not recorded by the other Evangelists,
