Who wrote the fourth gospel? Scripture has the answer.
 

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 stands out among the disciples as the one whom "Jesus loved" and yet this beloved disciple used terms like the "other disciple, whom Jesus loved" that hid his identity. Some say this shows humility. But couldn't a writer be humble and use his name, like John did five times in the Book of Revelation?

Unlike the apostles, the beloved disciple stood at the foot of the cross. So why did this "other disciple" use cryptic terms to mask his identity? This Bible study on The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved shows how scripture trumps the teachings of men and it does so by citing Bible facts about the unnamed disciple who wrote the fourth gospel and that allows scripture to illuminate 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 John was the one whom "Jesus loved" while there is not a single verse to justify that idea. Worse yet, 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 teachings of men.

A Better Bible Study Method employs the practice 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.

In this case of The Bible vs. Tradition, as in any other case, how we answer a question depends on where we look for the answer. If we put confidence in non-Bible sources and let the teachings of men be our standard of truth, then if teachers, scholars, or commentaries say 'John wrote the Gospel of John', we will simply assume that 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?

The facts in scripture identify this "other disciple"
 

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?
A Better Bible Study Method takes the idea that the beloved disciple was John and subjects it to biblical scrutiny. Efforts to justify the John idea depend on non-Bible sources, while a better Bible study method rests on the authority of God’s word.

"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man" (Ps. 118:8). The teachings of men are fallible. Scripture is inspired by God and is the measure of truth on Bible issues. It is a litmus test for every idea; and 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 that the author of the fourth gospel was one of the most notable people who associated with Jesus during his earthly ministry.)

The secret of the beloved disciple and much more
 
The writer of the fourth gospel called himself the "other disciple" – "other" than who? Find out in this free Bible study on the beloved disciple.

If you want the truth, then allow God's word to answer your Bible questions.

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
as the first disciple? Hint: it's
not Peter, James or John.
