In reading the account of the crucifixion this morning and the part where Jesus gives his mom to John to be cared for, I was reminded of something I was once told. We don’t hear much in scripture about the Apostle John after the crucifixion. Someone reasoned that this was because he was busy care for the Lord’s mother as Jesus had asked. At the end of John’s life, probably after Mary had died, God rewarded John for his faithfulness to the task Jesus had given him by allowing the Apostle to have the vision of the Revelation. Whether this is the reason John was chosen to receive this vision I do not know, but it would have possibilities.
