John III accepted the decrees of the Synod of Constantinople held on July 20, 518 that pronounced anathema on Severus of Antioch. Patr. John then convened a synod at Jerusalem that paralleled the examples of Constantinople. Attending the synod was archimandrite St. Sabbas of the lavras of Palestine, a strong Chalcedonian.
