    - Relationship between Jesus and the 'beloved' disciple, John the Evangelist. See more ideas about John the evangelist, Disciple, Jesus pins. The Inner Character of Christ. First, a disciple must develop the character of Jesus. This is Christ-likeness on the inside. Paul was referring to this when he urged the Philippians, “ Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had” (Philippians , NLT).). The word “attitude” (phroneo) here.

    One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was lying close to the breast of Jesus; so Simon Peter beckoned to him and said, “Tell us who it is of whom he speaks” (John ). Wait. What?   Jesus has just finished an important conversation with this blustery former fisherman where Christ had asked Peter three times if he loved Him (John ). That motivating, confrontational, and personal conversation was coming to its conclusion when Peter turned around and saw the Apostle John following them (John ).

      When I started Eric’s book, Becoming the Beloved Disciple: Coming Unto Christ through the Gospel of John, I read his tribute to his mother who “told [him] the stories of Jesus. Find Your Way To The Heart Of Jesus. Every disciple and early follower of Christ left a legacy for future believers. John's legacy was love. Perhaps like no other disciple, John understood that relationship is the point. Every command of Christ and call to obedience is to enhance relationship and place the recipient in a posture the Giver can.

Updated Septem The ApostleJohn had the distinction of being a beloved friend of Jesus Christ, writer of five books of the New Testament, and a pillar in the early Christian church.

John and his brother James, another disciple of Jesus, were fishermen on the Sea of Galilee when Jesus called them to follow him. In the Gospel of John, the beloved disciple emerges as a close, personal friend of the Lord.

Along with Martha, Lazarus, and Mary, John is described explicitly in this Gospel as one whom Jesus loved (see John5). His position at the table during the Last Supper reflected not only honor but also closeness.

Book Overview John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of his ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom.5/5(5).

John, as an apostle of Jesus, not only wrote his eye-witness account of experiences with Christ which were recorded in his gospel, but also wrote the books of 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and the book of Revelation - John's vision of judgment for the wicked and hope for the future of believers.

The Beloved Disciple takes Jesus’ mother Mary into his care, when Jesus as the oldest son of the family was formerly responsible for the family as function “head of the house.” He is officially designated as the “son” meaning that he is now to carry on the caretaker function for the household that Jesus no longer could do.

The “disciple whom Jesus loved” could not be Peter, as Peter asks Jesus a question in regards to this disciple (John ). That leaves us with James or John. Jesus made a statement about the possible "longevity" of the life of the disciple whom He loved in John The most common identification of this character is drawn from an early tradition, which holds that the beloved disciple was an actual individual known as John, the son of Zebedee, a disciple of Jesus.

This theory also identifies the son of Zebedee as the author of the Gospel of John. In the book of John, the apostle John writes many times about the disciple whom Jesus loved. John is one of them, “ the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

John the Apostle was the son of Zebedee and the younger brother of James, son of Zebedee (James the Greater). According to Church tradition, their mother was Salome. Also according to Church tradition, Salome was the sister of Mary, Jesus' mother, so Salome was Jesus' aunt, and her sons John the Apostle and James were Jesus' cousins.

He was first a disciple of John the Baptist. In his book The Passover Plot, author Hugh Schonfield argues that the Beloved Disciple was an otherwise unknown priest who lived in Jerusalem.

Schonfield says that this priest was a secret disciple of Jesus who was also well enough acquainted with top Jewish officials to be able to gain admittance to the interrogations of Jesus.

Becoming the Beloved Disciple is, as its title might suggest, a book about discipleship–an important gospel concept that cannot quite be reduced to followership, obedienceship, believership, or membership in any organization.

True disciples both learn from and emulate their master. Though not directly stated, we know that John was called the beloved disciple, or “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (John ).

His occupation was as a fisherman before he and his brother became disciples of Christ. John and James were cousins to Jesus as their mother Salome was the sister of Jesus’ mother Mary (Matthew ; Mark ).

John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of his ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom.

And one unforgettable morning young John outran Peter to his Savior’s empty tomb/5(13). The only persons the bible says, Jesus loved, is Mary, Martha, and ne assumes the disciple Jesus loved is the apostle John, I believe this is incorrect.

If you read Johnthe aposptle John could not possibly be the disciple Jesus loved. Seeing Jesus through the eyes of the beloved disciple was breathtaking. Beth Moore did an excellent job of presenting John's Gospel, letters and Revelation in a way that helped me to go deeper in my faith, affirm my faith and to know the heart and mind of Christ better than ever than before/5(57).

The disciple whom Jesus loved. He is designated in John’s Gospel not by a name but by the relative clause ”the disciple whom Jesus loved” (; ; ;20).

The verb agapaō (ēgapa) is used in all occurrences but where phileō (ephilei) is used. Bible References to Jesus’ Love      The phrase “whom Jesus loved” identifies the author as being the object of Jesus’ love. Since he is not called the disciple who loved Jesus, this book does not examine any verses dealing with an individual’s love toward Jesus.

Beloved Disciple - Bible Study Book The Life and Ministry of John John referred to himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” Just as Christ took John on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, He will do the same for you.

The beloved disciple attests to the full humanity and death of Jesus. When he and Peter race to the tomb after Jesus’ resurrection, he wins.

Nothing more is revealed about Thaddeus in the Bible. We know Thaddeus, like the other disciples, left his former life to follow and serve Jesus Christ faithfully, enduring hardship and persecution.
