How many years did Apostle John live on earth?

Q: How many years did Apostle John live on earth? Did he remain faithful up to the end of his life?

A: St. John was probably around 14 or 15 when he met Jesus for the first time, around the year 31 AD.

Best estimate is that he died … a faithful priest and bishop of the Catholic Church … and the last remaining apostle … about the year 99 AD.

That would have made him about 83 years old, at the time of his death.

St. John is known as the apostle that Jesus loved … and he is the only apostle that was present at the foot of the cross, at Calvary.

Due to his youthful appearance, at the time of the Last Supper, he’s also the apostle that was mistakenly identified as Mary Magdalene, by writer Dan Brown, in the ficticious (and totally ridiculous) “DaVinci Code”.

The real Leonardo DaVinci knew precisely who he was drawing … and it was most certainly St. John … as confirmed by St. John, in his own Gospel.
