The Authorship of the 4th Gospel: The Disciple Whom Yeshua Loved

Well I wonder, wonder who, who oo oo oo –

Anyone who has been reading the articles and Bible studies on knows that traditional Christian teachings and interpretations are routinely called into question.  Our approach to biblical interpretation is to let the Scriptures speak and have authority as the proper way and walk of faith without consideration to the traditions and commandments of men.  This requires that we give no weight to man-made traditions which tend to steer people away from the truth.  Much of what our fathers were taught and passed down to us is fraught with the errors of misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the culture and context of the writings of Scripture.  Our fathers have taught us lies because they were taught lies.

  1. Sue, I read this last week–very interesting. And last night I flipped through the whole book of John just trying to get the flow of the whole narration, while looking out for references on the one that Jesus loved.

    I just made a search and here’s another interesting [very short] article on the same topic from allaboutjesuschrist(dot)org: QUESTION: Disciple Jesus Loved: Lazarus – What is the proof?

    Have a blessed day!

  2. Thanks so much for letting me know about that article – very interesting indeed. I tend to agree (but wouldn’t insist on it) that Lazarus was “the disciple whom Jesus loved,” rather than John. What do you think?


  3. Same with you–tend to agree (the arguments do make sense), but wouldn’t insist on it. Again, last night I started flipping through 1 John (but fell asleep after a few pages), and there seemed to be a similarity in the writing style somehow (and contents) with the book of John. Who knows? All I can say is, regardless of who authored it–what wonderful words to read in all the books of John (John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John)!

    Shalom. ♥
