Guest Post: The Tradition about the Apostle and Evangelist John

I wrote a guest post entitled “The Traditions about the Apostle and Evangelist John” at Matthew W. Ferguson’s blog. In the post, I give a summary of the different church traditions about the fourth evangelist and explain why some interpreters, in both the past and the present, have found it so necessary to connect the New Testament writings to one of the “apostles” or “sent ones” appointed by Jesus himself rather than another otherwise unknown yet devout Christ follower. Have a read through the post and let me know whether you think it is important, on either historical or theological grounds, that the Apostle John be the author of the Fourth Gospel and why or why not.
