What of James and John, the sons of Zebedee?
Jesus passed by their work place and their course of life, and names changed forever.
The Sons of Thunder, James the older and first to die for Jesus name in Jerusalem.
And John, forever to be known as the “one whom Jesus loved”. Follower, disciple, and writer of the Gospel of John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and Revelation.
John’s is the English spelling for the Hebrew name “Johanan” which means “Jehovah is gracious”; hence, John represents “Grace”.
Grace represents the numeral five (5):
the fifth time Noah’s name is mentioned, it says “But Noah found grace…;”
the fifth time Ruth’s name is mentioned, “…in whose sight I may find favor or (grace);”
the fifth time David’s name is mentioned when we meet him in 1 Samuel 16, “…let David stand before me, for he has found favor (grace) in my sight.”
The Beloved John wrote five (5) books in the Bible;
Yes, John the disciple whom Jesus loved showered us with His Grace.
