Two Johns?

Is John the Theologian - of Isle of Patmos fame, who wrote Revelation, one and the same person as John the Evangelist, John the gospel writer, or are these two different Johns?

The Grace of God?

The quote, "There, but for the Grace of God, go I" has bothered me for a long time.  The phrase seems to imply that God's grace is with me, but not with the unfortunate person whose life and circumstances occasion the comment. Does that phrase have any biblical basis, either directly in the text or in the implied theology?

Is the Bible true?

It brings a smile to some faces to hear the line: "Everything in the Bible is true, and some of it actually happened." Others find that line irreverent. How much of what is recorded in the Bible actually happened as it is written?
