A Dictionary of the Book of Mormon/John
JOHN. The Apostle, usually called John the Revelator. He is mentioned by name three times in the Book of Mormon. Twice regarding the things revealed to him (I Nephi, 14:27; Ether, 4:16); and once regarding his request, similar to that of the three Nephites, that he might live and minister on the earth until Jesus returned (III Nephi, 28:6).
