Is the identity of the "disciple whom Jesus loved" part of the mysteries of faith? Is it the apostle John, son of Zebedee? Lazarus? or Nathanael? Neither the testimonies from the 11th to the 15th century nor the data from the four Gospels allow us to determine this. In acknowledging his anonymity, Joseph Le Minh Thông focuses on the enigma of this disciple's identity in the biblical text and the meaning of his closeness to Christ. For through his witness, the Gospel invites us to become ourselves the disciple that Jesus loved, and to make God's love our own name.
A book of intelligence that speaks to the heart.
Dominican, doctor of biblical theology from the Catholic University of Lyon, Joseph Lê Minh Thông teaches at the École biblique et archéologique française de Jérusalem.
