Oil in The Bible refers to the Holy Spirit, like in the worship in the tabernacle and then in the New Testament.

there is no Revelation 66. it ends in the 20's


A:We know nothing about John of Patmos apart from his authorship of the Book of Revelation, but presumably he was able to see, in order to be able to write. Because the author of the Book of Revelation identified himself as 'John', the book was once attributed to the apostle John. However, scholars say that he is most unlikely to have been the real author, and for this reason now refer to the uthor of Revelation as John of Patmos. The fanciful tradition that the apostle John was boiled in oil then exiled to Patmos was needed in order to get him to Patmos so that he could write the book there. Since this John was not the author, we do not need the oil, nor the exile. Without all these punishments, there is no reason to imagine John of Patmos as being blinded.

A:The legend of John being boiled in oil began long after the New Testament was completed, and there is no scriptural support for the notion. However, the second-century Church Fathers decided that the John who wrote the Book of Revelation must have been the apostle John. As Revelation was clearly written no earlier than the end of the first century, it became necessary to explain how the apostle John survived to such a great age. Traditions of martyrdom had grown up around all the other apostles, and it is very possible that in the earliest version of John's legend, he was martyred by being boiled in oil. This evolved into a tradition (first reported by Jerome) that John had miraculously survived being boiled in oil, and the hapless emperor had no choice but to exile John to Patmos, where he wrote Revelation. This raises the paradox as to how Domitian was able to secure John's cooperation if he was unable to harm him, but if he could harm John then why not behead him?

There are three: Oil of Catechumens; oil of the sick; oil of chrism


The Catholic Church finds the use of oil sacred.


A popular Christian tradition about John is that Emperor Domitian ordered him brought as a prisoner to Rome and thrown into a vat of boiling oil. John was unharmed by the boiling oil, and he was eventually exiled under guard in Patmos. Not only is the alleged episode of the boiling oil entirely implausible, the alleged exile proves it to be so. If John was immune to harm, as shown by his escape from the boiling oil, he could scarcely have been restrained by armed guards, who also would have been totally unable to harm him. The tradition links John to Patmos because the Book of Revelation was written by a person called John, and the Church Fathers decided that this John must be the same person as the disciple John. This journey was necessary in order to identify John the disciple with the author of Revelation.

Another answer from our community:Because he was a Christian preaching the Gospels. But this history is not sure.Revelation 1:1 states that the Book of Revelation was written by a person called John, and Revelation 1:9 says that he wrote from Patmos, without at any stage saying that he had been exiled to the island.During the second century, it was decided that the author of Revelation must have been the apostle John, merely because of the coincidence of names. It then became necessary to explain why the apostle John came to be on the Island of Patmos. It was decided that the emperor had him boiled in oil, but that this did not harm him, so he was exiled to Patmos. It is never explained how it was possible to exile John anywhere, if his enemies were unable to harm him.Another answer:John was exiled to Patmos as punishment for refusing to stop preaching the gospel. Revelation 1:9 - I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.[NKJV]Because he preached the Gospels; but this John is a controversial person not confirmed by any serious document.
