About the Book

When John joined his brother, James, and they traveled with John the Baptist, he was the youngest disciple. John and James were part of Jesus’ ministry for three years, and then they were instrumental in forming the early church. Long after Jerusalem was destroyed, John wrote Revelation while exiled on Patmos. Eventually, Nerva, the Roman Emperor, freed John and he was taken to Ephesus. During his last years, he taught, preached and wrote about his travels with Jesus. He was the last of Jesus’ original twelve disciples to die.

About the Author

The author served in the U.S. Navy and then went to college. After graduating with an engineering degree, he enjoyed careers (50 yrs.) as an engineer, businessman, and professor. He is now retired but writes novels. While reading the New Testament for over sixty years and teaching Sunday School Bible classes for twenty years, John Mench Ph.D. has been conflicted by the lack of personality within the testament. He endeavors to add perspective to the message of the testament by creating lives for those who wrote and developed Jesus’ message.
