WHO WAS JESUS? – John R Schroeder – Plain Truth Magazine
Was Jesus man, God or what? Where did he come from? Was he really divine? Here, from the book of John, are the answers. Almost all human beings either have or have had a “best friend,” or a “closest buddy”- someone with whom they have shared a side of themselves seldom seen by others. Though Jesus loved all men, he was especially close to his disciple John. The apostle himself revealed this warm relationship in his own gospel. John is a bit hesitant about mentioning himself in the first person although he wasn’t at all hesitant about mentioning the other disciples by name. He is the only one of the gospel writers who was bold enough to point out Simon Peter as the man who severed the servant’s ear during Jesus’ arrest in the garden (John 8:10). Yet he never mentions himself by name in his entire book; when he writes of “John,” he refers to John the Baptist.
