Church historian and Biblical scholar Bede the Venerable c. Erasmus priest, doctor of divinity, and great Renaissance humanist, expressed doubts about the canonicity of Revelation.

Jesus' reply is Also see John when Jesus announced in the Temple on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles: Let anyone who is thirsty come to me! Let anyone who believes in me come and drink!
