St. John the Apostle

St. John is known as the ‘beloved disciple’ of Jesus and the author of the Gospel of St. John and the Book of Revelation. He was a young fisherman when he followed Jesus. He was the only apostle who stayed with Jesus during the Crucifixion. He was also the only apostle who lived till old age. In one legend, St. John blessed a cup of poisoned drink and it was then safe to consume. This is why he is often depicted holding a cup with demons coming out. St. John's feast day is on 27 December.
