His name is John..............

It is widely accepted that the beloved disciple is John.

It was John who wrote Revelation
---Evelyn on 7/5/07


Thanks Alan. I'd never heard that view either...perhaps another Dan Brown misconception? ;-)
---Leon on 5/25/06


Leon ... I am sorry if I was unclear. The word "apparently" referred to the views stated on a another blog, where some said that John the writer of The Revelation was not the original disciple John who wrote the gospel. I asked if anyone could give an authoritive answer on that view. Certainly it is not one I had heard before

The argument goes that the language style in the original Greek of the Gospel (and Epistles of John) is much more elevated and literary than the Greek of Revelation, which is almost illiterate. This has led many scholars to believe they are by two different Johns.

I believe the traditional identification of the Evangelist with the Revelator. This is consistent with the same tradition that gave us the Bible to start with.

Alan... "...The John who wrote the Revelation... another John ". How's that "apparent"? Please explain.
---Leon on 5/25/06


John is the beloved disciple. John is the very one that Jesus gave his mother to take care of her.
---Helen_5378 on 5/25/06


Yes, it was John as well as all disciples. John, however had a revelation of God's love for Him which he wished to profess. We love because He first loved us. Oh to more fully know that love which sets us free!!!

Let's not forget that Lazarus is also identified as somene whom Jesus loved. "He whom You love is dead." John 11.

And then when the Rich Young Ruler told Jesus he had kept the Decalogue from his youth up, "Jesus loved him" the evangelist says.

John writes that it was himself in John 21:20,24. He was the partner of Peter, who prepared the passover and both ran to the empty tomb, and John recorded the gospel. Please read Luke 22:8-13; John 20:1-8; 21:20,24; Acts 3:1; 4:13.

Evelyn ... there was discussion on another blog and it seemed that the John who wrote the Gospel was the john who had been Jesus disciple during His time here. The John who wrote the Revelation was apparently another John. Is there an authorative answer to this?
---alan8869_of_UK on 5/25/06


Name a disciple Jesus didn't love.
