John is traditionally thought to have moved to Ephesus, where he wrote the Gospel and the three epistles and eventually died.
According to tradition, John was also banished by Roman authorities to the island of Patmos, where he then wrote the Book of Revelation. According to Tertullian (in The Prescription Against Heretics) John was banished after being plunged into boiling oil in Rome and remaining unharmed.
