By Pastora Monique Lopez Ong - I am blessed to have a husband named John. Because through the eyes of John, we see the heart of Jesus.
Who is John the Beloved Apostle? John is the son of Zebedee and zsalome. He is the younger brother of James the fisheman. He is partners with Peter the Rock. They are followers of John the Baptist so they know that they have to repent because the Messiah is coming. John is a man of action and is ambitious and intolerant. He will not take no for an answer and takes to heart everything that is taught to him. John is called the son of thunder because of his explosive temper. But inspite of all these, John is incredibly faithful. When he followed Jesus, he remained all of his life. John is part of Jesus’ inner circle, together with Peter and James. During Jesus’ transfiguration, His inner circle were there. John saw a lot of miracles performed by Jesus. He was with Jesus during the night before He was going to be executed. They were asleep but they were there. John wtote the books John, 1-3 John and Revelation. Although the gospels are synoptic, the book of John has stories that you will not read in the other gospels that show his very close proximity to Jesus.
John is The Disciple Whom Jesus Loves, as Peter mentioned in John 21:20 “Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them.”)
The Book of John says in John 20:31 “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
