Closing Thoughts on John
John, at the end of his gospel, reveals his identity. As "the disciple that Jesus loved," he was put in the position to see many public and private workings of Jesus. John knows what he says is true because he was there. Others know it is true because he had a good reputation and was held in high regard--otherwise, he wouldn't have been granted entrance at the court when Jesus was arrested. He was surely selective in what he told us because he states at the end that the world couldn't contain the books written of Jesus' life. He did so much, even to the point of death--to bring us salvation.
