I am aware that the Homeschooling article speculates that John was schooled by Jesus, but I feel for articles on the Apostles themselves, that we should stick to what is known in regard to categorization. Learn together 17:01, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

I don't know about other denominations or elsewhere, but most Anglican churches in England contain a lectern in the form of an eagle with spread or semi-spread wings. They can be made by a master craftsman in silver or bronze or brass, or carved from a single piece of local timber by one of the parishioners. My favorite is in the tiny church in Oare in the north of Exmoor, Somerset where Lorna Doone married John Ridd. (Haven't read "Lorna Doone"? - You should.) It's carved and chipped and fashioned from a piece of oak or yew by someone who loved what he was doing. (I know this because this is the sort of thing I have loved doing,)

The eagle represents wisdom and, as such, represents John. AlanE 23:18, 19 October 2012 (EDT)

Oh! and another thing! I have a photo of the Oare lectern, if someone wants to upload it. AlanE 23:56, 19 October 2012 (EDT)
