Authorship of St. John"s Gospel by Donovan, John Download PDF EPUB FB2

The author of John’s Gospel tells us that he has chosen not to record many of the symbolic acts of Jesus and has instead included certain episodes in order that his readers may understand and share in the mystical union of Christ’s church, that they “may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.

Ignatius of Antioch (c. AD) quotes John’s Gospel quite frequently as he writes an epistle to the Antiochians. Ignatius’s quotation of the Fourth Gospel illustrates that the book was viewed in a positive light and authoritative. Ignatius is noted as a disciple of John the apostle along with Polycarp.

Argument #1: The fourth Gospel does not agree with the synoptic accounts (Matthew, Mark and Luke): The most often quoted argument against St. John's authorship is that so much of the synoptic Gospel portrait of Jesus is missing from the fourth Gospel account and what is included is very different.

Yet only one—the Gospel of John—claims authorship of St. Johns Gospel book be an eyewitness account, the testimony of the unnamed “disciple whom Jesus loved.” (“This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true” [John ]).

Irenaeus identified the author of the fourth Gospel as St. John the Apostle. He does so based on the instruction of his teacher, St. Polycarp (d. ), who himself was a disciple of St. John. Throughout this Gospel, the numerous details indicate the author was an eyewitness. The Gospel of John is the fourth of the Four Gospels of the New Testament - Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

John's Gospel is followed by the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament of the Bible. John's Gospel is a mystical reflection on the Word Made Flesh, Jesus Christ. This theologically profound Gospel is composed by the beloved.

John, the son of Zebedee, is the author of this Gospel. He and his brother James are called the "Sons of Thunder," most likely for their lively, zealous personalities. Of the 12 disciples, John, James, and Peter formed the inner circle, chosen by Jesus to become his closest companions.

They had the exclusive privilege of witnessing and testifying about events in the. Gospel according to Saint John, fourth book of the New Testament. This account of Jesus' life is clearly set off from the other three Gospels (see Synoptic Gospels), although it is probable that John knew and used both Mark and Luke as Gospel opens with a prologue in which Jesus is identified with the Word (see Logos).This term echoes usages of the Old Testament.
