Who wrote the fourth gospel? The one "whom Jesus loved"
 

A better Bible study method shows that the 'Book of John' leaves out key events of Jesus’ ministry when the Apostle John was present but the author was not.

Which gospel omits the
Mount of Transfiguration
& the prayers of Jesus at
Gethsemane and why?

The author of the fourth gospel was singled out among the disciples as being the one whom "Jesus loved" and he was a key figure in the life of Jesus. Still, few stop to consider why this beloved disciple used terms like the "other disciple, whom Jesus loved" to conceal his identity. Some say the writer of the gospel did this to be humble. But would that mean an author was not humble if he identified himself by name (such as John did repeatedly in the Book of Revelation)?

Unlike the apostles, the beloved disciple stood at the foot of the cross. So why did this "other disciple" hide his identity when he wrote the fourth gospel? A free eBook called The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved shows how the Bible reveals the answer. Truly, trusting scripture is better than trusting the traditions of men when it comes to shedding light on the unnamed author who wrote the fourth gospel and the one-of-a-kind gift from God that made this beloved disciple so unique.

Was John the beloved disciple who wrote the fourth gospel?
 
The need for a better Bible study method is shown by the fact that so many think the one whom "Jesus loved" was John even though there is not a single verse to justify that idea. Truly, the biblical evidence can prove John was not the author of the gospel that was wrongly labeled the Gospel of John or Book of John by the traditions of men.

The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved follows the method of the Bereans (who "searched the scriptures" to confirm what they had been told), and trusts the testimony of scripture to reveal the truth. You are the jury and the Bible is Exhibit A, as we look to God's word for answers in the mystery of the beloved disciple who wrote the fourth gospel.

This is a case of The Bible vs. Tradition. But in this or any other case, how we answer a question will depend on where we look for the answer. If we put confidence in non-Bible sources and let the teachings of men tell us what to believe, then when preachers, scholars, or commentaries say 'John wrote the Gospel of John', we will simply assume it is true.


A better Bible study method shows why the beloved disciple was the first one who believed after the resurrection when he went in the tome of Jesus.

After the resurrection, who
was the first disciple that
"believed" and what did he
see that caused this?

Who was the "other disciple"? The Bible has the answer
 

The beloved disciple leaned on Jesus at the Last Supper yet his gospel does not mention the bread and wine. A Better Bible Study Method, Book One explains why.

Which gospel leaves out the
breaking of the bread and
the sharing of the cup at the
Last Supper and why?
The idea that the beloved disciple was John is promoted as if it was biblical, but The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved proves that idea cannot stand up to biblical scrutiny. While the John idea is sold using non-Bible sources, the foundation of a better Bible study method is the authority of God’s word.

The teachings of men are fallible. Scripture is inspired by God and is the measure of truth on biblical issues. So, why not use it to test every idea? "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man" (Ps. 118:8). Thus, if no verse of scripture suggests the one whom "Jesus loved" was John, is it wise to follow men who ignore that fact?

Scripture can prove John was not the writer of the fourth gospel and it can solve the mystery of the beloved disciple by revealing the identity of this anonymous gospel author. (It turns out this beloved disciple and unnamed gospel writer was actually one of the most notable people who associated with Jesus during his earthly ministry.)

Scripture is profitable for correction, so Christians should welcome biblical correction on any issue, even the identity of the author of the fourth gospel (the book men wrongly called the Gospel of John or Book of John). Those who do will learn that submitting to the authority of God’s word is the key to a better Bible study method.


The book wrongly called 'Gospel of John' is the only place the Bible says Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead and Lazarus of Bethany is only cited in the fourth gospel. Why?

Which of the followers of
Jesus does the Bible identify
