Who Was the Disciple Jesus Loved?

There is much to look into if one knows traditions of men lead away from the TRUTH!
Mark Phillips
John or Lazarus was the one Jesus loved?
In the gospels, do we find any man besides the unnamed author who associated with Jesus, who was also identified as being “loved” by him? Yes we do! Incredibly, two chapters before the one whom “Jesus loved” is even mentioned, the author of the fourth gospel told his readers about a friend of Je...sus who was “loved” by him – in 11:3, where this message was sent to Jesus, “Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick”, and in 11:5, where we are told “Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus”.

You might say, that all followers were disciples. All who were following Jesus where his disciples. The Apostles didn't even get what Jesus was talking about, until after He appeared to them. But Lazarus had a very special relationship in that he was resurrected back to life. A disciple does not have to be an Apostle, just a follower of Jesus.
Grace to you,
