St John the Divine


What do protestants mean when they call St John the Evangelist St John the Devine?


A “divine” is a theologian. The great Anglican theologians of the reign of King Charles are known as “The Caroline Divines.” The Eastern Orthodox refer to St. John (the Evangelist) as St. John the Theologian. Same thing.
