John In India ??

Encylopedias and a real live man from India tell of a John who came to the Western part of India during the first century. He built a Church there. There is a wrought iron cross in the Church graveyard with the name John. Many Christians are still there today.

Do you know this John. I was told that he was “the other John”. Is he listed in Scripture? Thanks.:wave:

John? It is my understanding that the Apostle Thomas founded the Church in India. Here’s an article on the St. Thomas Christians of India ( There are several John’s mentioned in the article but they are later.
