    Beloved Disciple Identity

    • 2637 Words
    • 11 Pages

    The end of the fourth gospel sets the scene with Peter turning and looking at the one whom Jesus loved. Peter ask Jesus why he has not asked this person to follow him, as he has Peter. Jesus replies with “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is it to you?” The ‘he’ that Jesus is referring to is the beloved disciple. The second to last set of verses in John, does not provide an answer the question of who this Beloved Disciple is, but only raises more. In this essay, I will explore the identity of the Beloved Disciple, and by doing this, also examining the authorship of the gospel. The beloved disciple is a character who is not explicitly named in the fourth gospel. He makes several different appearances within the gospel, but…

    The Jesus movement was spreading like wildfire throughout the Roman Empire in early years of the Common Era. Before the Jesus movement, women were being suppressed and had to submit to man 's authority. Women had no right to hold a higher position in life or in the church. Women had very little choices of what they really wanted to become in their later years. They were either to be a housewife or labeled as being whores. The Jesus movement was an important time for women to spring up and do…

    the same way (Jesus does not calm the sea, Peter’s three denials of Jesus). John’s gospel contains many events that are not included in Mark’s gospel (water into wine, the woman at the well, washing of the disciples feet) and it spans three Passovers. John’s gospel begins with the creation of the world and tells us that Jesus was present with God at that time. Since Jesus was with God before the creation of the world John stresses that Jesus is the word of God made human (flesh) and…

    Gospel Of John

    • 416 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Gospel of John is a unique perspective of the life of Jesus Christ. "In the beginning was the Word (Jesus Christ), and the word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God" (John 1:1-2). John begins his Gospel with Jesus in a way none of the synoptic gospels had. His version of Jesus began at the same time as God, compared to the others’ beginning after God. It varies from the other three gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke (also known as the synoptic gospels), by…

    the foundation for Jesus’ dialogue with his disciples. John 15:1-17 is a part of John’s gospel and considered one of the four gospels; in which, the others are called the Synoptic Gospels and include Matthew, Mark and Luke. All four of these gospels are a part of the New Testament. Furthermore, John’s gospel was written sometime between AD 55 and AD 95 (Carson 82) in Ephesus (ESV Study Bible) by John who was a fisherman called by Jesus to follow (Matthew 4:21). Also, John was a Jew from…

    and ministry of Jesus Christ. There are several conflicting stories about the authorship of this gospel. One writer, Kenneth Barksdale, suggests that the author is the Apostle John, otherwise known as “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (1499). Barksdale rationalizes his assumption that John is the writer by many facts recorded in the Gospel, the most logical is the fact that although John was very prominent in the early church, he is not mentioned by name in the book of John (1499).…

    The Gospel of John portrays the divinity of Jesus. The Gospel of John was written for the world to show that Jesus was the "Son of God." When he was hung on the cross there were several women close enough that Jesus could talk to his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. ‘When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’”(John 19:25-26). Jesus told Mary, his mother, that the…

    to John. Jesus tells believers He is the vine, and they are the branches, abiding in Him will allow them to bear fruit, however without Jesus, believers are nothing. (John 15:1-5) “Vines were often used to express fruitfulness, dependence, vital union, pruning” and for a culture here people were familiar with agriculture, this metaphor would have made perfect sense. (Hutchinson, John C. 64) What Jesus likely desired from His disciples was a recognition that they were not capable of producing…

    When reading these two passages, my thoughts as to the correlation between the two lead to Peter’s denials that were made in the hours leading up to the crucifixion, when political/social cries for Jesus’ execution were at their loudest, Peter didn’t want to share the same fate. Jesus’ call to Peter to feed his sheep, in John, comes after an avid and tri-fold denial of even knowing Jesus. In Mark, a witness opportunity to Jesus’ life and ministry was avoided, since Peter fears for his life.…
