Saint John was one of the original twelve Apostles, and wrote the Gospel bearing his name and three canonical letters: I John, II John, and III John; and the Book of Revelation.His brother was St. James, another apostle. When over 100 years old, St. John took seven disciples outside of Ephesus and had them dig a grave in the shape of a cross. St. John then went into the grave, and the disciples buried him there, alive. Later on, when his grave was opened, St. John's body was not there. The eagle is the iconographic symbol of the Evangelist John the Theologian. More and the life os Saint John the Theologian
