comment Does John 21:20-24 indicate that the original author of the Fourth Gospel was dead?
I would agree. But Church and tradition have said little about whether or not John 21 is a later appendage to the forth gospel by the hand of this disciple or one of his close followers after his death. While we should give deference to Group A, I don't think we should disparage Group B. I think they have given us good tools upon which most of us can agree.

comment How many days elapsed between Jesus's baptism and his return to Galilee?
I thought you might say that. (referring to John's absence of a baptism account.) :).

Think "sitz em laban" :) What in the life setting of the author and has audience would contibute to mentioning this misunderstanding and then correcting it.

comment Was 1 John an unfinished letter?
1 John has no real introduction or conclusion which suggests that it was generic encyclical. It's likely 2 and perhaps 3 John were the type of cover letters that would have been attached to it.

comment For Whom has the Right and Left hand of Jesus been prepared?
+1 Right on Jack! I think you should quote Mark 15:27 "They crucified two rebels with him, one on his right and one on his left." I think Mark is indeed making allusion to the place of honor reserved for those who die with Jesus. But while James and John will die they won't die with Jesus. It has been literally prepared for the two thieves on the cross.
