  The Bible singles out one disciple of Jesus as the one whom "Jesus loved" and the book The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved takes a closer look at what scripture tells us about this beloved disciple and the special role he played in the life of Jesus. This book compares scripture with scripture to highlight facts in the biblical record that are usually overlooked about this "other disciple, whom Jesus Reviews:   The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved: Unveiling the Author of John's Gospel by Edward Reaugh Smith.

Because this small book began its life as a talk to a general audience, it is blessedly jargon-free and reader friendly. Author: Edward Reaugh Smith. "Whom Jesus "Really" Loved" This book does not only prove Judas to be the infallible "Disciple Whom Jesus Loved" in the Book of John. The studies presented in this book is well-founded through exhaustive research from its ancient original languages, before the conception of the English translations.   In my book The Jesus Dynasty (Simon & Schuster, ) I offer my reasons for thinking that the enigmatic figure in the Gospel of John, described as “the disciple whom Jesus loved,” or more commonly, the “Beloved Disciple,” is none other than James the brother of Jesus.

We find all of the references to "the disciple whom Jesus loved" in the book of John (John , John , John and John , John ). While the Gospel of John does not specifically identify its author, and "the disciple whom Jesus loved" is nowhere explicitly named in Scripture, the early Christians universally recognize John as the author of the Gospel and "the disciple whom Jesus loved.". John, the Disciple Whom Jesus Loved. The New Testament writings associated with John the Beloved present him as both a teacher and a model for our own discipleship. After Peter, John is perhaps the best known of Jesus’s original Twelve Apostles. He and his brother, James, were with Peter at some of the most important moments of the Savior’s mortal.   First, John reminds us about the transformative power of God’s love. All of us could refer to ourselves as the disciple whom Jesus loved. Because he does. He extraordinarily, unconditionally loves us. John experienced that firsthand and had to proclaim the testimony of it, even in his name. Second, we should know that names have incredible power. It is written in the Book of John, that the disciple referred to as the one “leaning on the bosom of Jesus” is the same disciple known also as, “disciple whom Jesus loved" (Jn ); both descriptions refer to one and the same disciple.

  Traditionally, John the Gospel writer was the disciple whom Jesus loved. However, upon closer study, there is another follower of Jesus that is a stronger candidate that you have likely not considered: Lazarus. The identity of the “beloved disciple” or the one John calls “disciple whom Jesus loved” is unnamed and has remained a mystery.   Answer: The Gospel of John is the only Gospel which mentions “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” John tells us, "One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to Him." John declares, "When Jesus saw His mother there, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, 'Dear woman, here is your son.'". This book basically argues that the fourth gospel was actually written by Lazarus, not John, and that Lazarus was therefore the ‘disciple whom Jesus loved’. I am sceptical of any author who claims to bring a new interpretation of the Bible/5. So she *ran and *came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and *said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”.
