Artist's Description

Cologne Cathedral
Detail of the Window of the Lamentation.

John the Evangelist was the son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of James (Saint James the Greater), another of the Twelve Apostles.

Yochanan was one of Christ’s original twelve apostles; the only one to live into old age; and not martyred for his faith, his traditional tomb is thought to be located at Selçuk, a small town in the vicinity of Ephesus.
He is believed to be the author of the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, and the Book of Revelation. (Well, the author of Revelation identifies himself as “John” several times, but the author of the Gospel of John never identifies himself directly.)

Originally, he and his brother were fishermen and fished with their father in the Lake of Genesareth. According to the usual and entirely probable explanation they became, however, for a time disciples of John the Baptist, and were called by Christ from the circle of John’s followers, together with Peter and Andrew, to become His disciples.

The feast day of Saint John in the Roman Catholic Church, which calls him Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist, is on 27 December.
He is considered a Patron Saint by the fraternal society of Free and Accepted Masons and Christian art usually represents St John with an eagle, symbolizing the heights to which he rises in the first chapter of his Gospel.
