"The Disciple Jesus Loved": Witness, Author, Apostle

A Response to Richard Bauckham's Jesus and the Eyewitnesses
  Andreas J. Köstenberger and Stephen O. Stout
  Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Dr. Steven O. Stout co-authored this article in the Bulletin for Biblical Research 18.2 (2008) 209–231. Synopsis:

Richard Bauckham’s Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2006) makes a persuasive argument that the Gospels display eyewitness testimony and thus renews the quest for the identity of the Beloved Disciple as the author of the Fourth Gospel. While Bauckham attributes this Gospel to “the presbyter John” mentioned by Papias, the authors of this study show that the patristic evidence more likely seems to support the authorship of John the apostle and that the literary device of inclusio in the Fourth Gospel, astutely observed by Bauckham, also favors the authorship of Johnthe son of Zebedee.
