comment Who was the Beloved Disciple?
I hope you don't mind, but I shifted the thrust of the question slightly. I think your answer actually fits the modified question better than the original.

Change the focus of the question to be who is the Beloved Disciple.

My wife and I had a similar idea about preventing pregnancy for the first year. Our contraceptive failed, however. I've never heard that the concept has any history before the Modern era. Interesting.

@Bruce: Good point. I'm really interested in getting the main arguments for who wrote John, so I amended the question. Perhaps I should divide it into two separate questions, however. We have a good answer on "Who was the Beloved Disciple?", so maybe I should ask the authorship question as a second post.

Make it clear that I want to know who wrote John.

Omit needless tags and open up the final question a bit.

comment Was Noah absolutely blameless or relatively good?
That's helpful. Seems like a very nuanced position!

Also (and this is a nitpick), I'm not sure couples took "a little time to themselves" in those days. But #4 sure seems like a non-serious contender even without that tidbit.

I agree with most of your logic, but I wonder if we can be sure that only the Twelve (and Jesus) were at the Last Supper? I agree we can eliminate James (who would not have been there), but I don't know if we can eliminate Lazarus or other disciples who are not among the 12 on that basis.

I think this covers the authorship question in a neutral way and spells out how we want other John-related questions to be tagged.

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics. I wonder if you would mind fleshing out how he could be both at once?
