Early Christian apocrypha use a dialogue style where Jesus talks to his disciples about the mysteries of faith, explaining them through answers to their questions the secrets of the world creation and life after death that canonic Testaments don’t reveal. The 13th-century apocryphal and heretic apocalypse known as “The Secret Book of John”, preserved in Latin, was used in the liturgy of Bosnian and Hum Christians, and it gives an insight into the religious context of life in medieval Bosnia. As indicated by its content, Interrogatio Iohannis aspires to be a complete catechism of beliefs of the Bosnian church Christians, and assumes the Bulgarian origin of the book.
