Christopher Skinner on the Beloved Disciple

The Society of Biblical Literature created a website called Bible Odyssey for laypersons who are interested in what biblical scholars are saying about various biblical people, places, and passages. Christopher Skinner has an article entitled “Who Was the Beloved Disciple?” on the website.
