Wow, that's deep.

Btw, is this James, Jesus' brother?

Mark D B said...

The James this Apocalypse is attributed to is referenced within it by the Lord (Jesus), "I have given you a sign of these things, James, my brother. For not without reason have I called you my brother, although you are not my brother materially."
