And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband
I wonder why John would need to mention his own name here? In many previous cases whenever he saw something, he would always say "And I saw", but here, toward the end of the book, he seems to want to make sure that the reader still remembers his name. Why? Was it a kind of literary device in ancient Greek for an author to re-state his name when he wants to signal that what is going to be reported now is more important and more magnificent than whatever has been narrated so far (John is about to describe the New Jerusalem at this point, which is, perhaps, the most beautiful vision in the whole book, plus, this is something that, unlike previous things seen by John, will continue in the eternity)? Do we have any evidence of this literary technique in any other non-biblical Greek writings of that time?
