New Series on the Beloved Disciple

Since I am currently researching the traditions about the authorship of John’s Gospel, I want to start a new series about the different views that scholars have held about the “disciple whom Jesus loved.” The reason this is important is that the epilogue of the Gospel seems to identify this mysterious disciple as the author of the whole narrative (see John 21:24). I will post an introductory handout about the Gospel of John tomorrow and will then look at the variety of suggestions about the beloved disciple put forward by scholars.
