Abstract [en]

The main thesis is that the figure of thre "Beloved Disciple" in John is a late invention (a fairly common opinion) and serves to legitimate not just the Gospel of John in general (as is often noted) but particularly the theme of the second "book" of John (chs 13-21): the arrest, bodily death, and resurrection of Jesus. This christology was a bone of contention in the Johannine community, as 1John evidences.
