9 [a]I John even your brother and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the [b]Isle called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the witnessing of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:9The narration opening the way to the declaring of the authority and calling of Saint John the Evangelist in this singular Revelation, and to procure faith, and credit unto this prophecy. This is the second part of this Chapter consisting of a proposition and an exposition. The proposition showeth, first who was called unto this Revelation, in what place, and how occupied, verse 9. Then at what time and by what means, namely, by the spirit and the word, and that on the Lord’s day, which day ever since the resurrection of Christ, was consecrated for Christians unto the religion of the Sabbath: that is to say, to be a day of rest, verse 10. Thirdly, who is the author that calleth him, and what is the sum of his calling.
Revelation 1:9Patmos is one of the isles of Sporas whither John was banished as some write.
