John's dominant spiritual attribute is LOVE.
Known as "the beloved Disciple", John represents the highest power and the strongest Christian quality, LOVE. He was the son of the fisherman, Zebedee, and he and his brother James, once called "sons of thunder", were strong, brave men who sailed the sea in little fishing boats in stormy as well as good weather.
John showed his courage and devotion in many ways. It was he who stayed at the foot of the cross, comforting Mary, Mother of Jesus. John was the first to recognize Jesus after His resurrection. Returning from a fishing trip, he looked toward the shore and saw the lone figure of a man whom he recognized as Jesus. In this portrait, we see John looking toward the shore and saying: "It is our Lord."
Jesus loved this Disciple as a brother, and it was into John's keeping that he committed his mother, saying: "Woman, behold thy son."
John lived to be a very old man. The Bible tells us he was seen in Jerusalem fifteen years after Paul's first visit. He was sent into exile on the Island of Patmos, and it was there that he wrote the inspired Book of the Bible, "The Revelations."

JOHN, BROTHER OF JAMES and SON OF ZEBEDEE - A FISHERMAN According to John's Gospel (19:26-27), it was probably John who took Mary, the mother of Jesus as his adopted mother. He preached in Jerusalem, and later, as bishop of Ephesus, south of Izmir in western Turkey, worked among the churches of Asia Minor. During the reigns of either Emperor Nero (AD54-68) or Domitian (AD81-96), he was banished to the nearby island of Patmos, now one of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. He was subsequently freed and died a natural death at Ephesus c AD100.
The apostle John wrote the Book of Revelation, John's Gospel and the three Letters of John.
