Traditionally it was believed that the Apostle John wrote Revelation, but more modern scholars reject this idea. Nobody really knows who this "John of Patmos" is. Well, God does and that is all that really matters, eh?
I have always loved it when God calls Himself the "Alpha and the Omega." Maybe because they are Greek words and my father was Greek. I love most things Greek, as I associate them with him. I just like the way they sound. Alpha and Omega! The Beginning and the End of all creation.
Christians still go to Patmos Island on pilgrimage to see the cave where John had his vision. I think I will add it to my "Bucket List" of places I would like to see. According to the pictures in a search I did on Patmos, it is a beautiful island in the Aegean Sea. Lots to see and do.
