And One Sat On The Throne (Revelation 4:2)

I was recently presented with a statement in reference to (Revelation 4:2); “Paul only saw one sitting on the throne and that one sitting was Jesus”. Unfortunately that is not what that passage states.
(1.) First, it is not disputed that the throne mentioned was that of God (the Father); however
(2.) It was not the throne of Jesus (his Son); this is made clear in (Revelation 3:21) “as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”
