We could say the gospel of John is about all sorts of things. But primarily the gospel of John is about friendship. And we see in the gospel of John this friendship between the beloved disciple and Jesus, particularly the beloved disciple and Jesus. But also, I would say Mary Magdalene and Jesus and some of the other disciples and apostles and Jesus. And one of the things that John’s gospel can do for the reader, for you, is to discover yourself as the beloved disciple. So the beloved disciple isn’t somebody else it’s me, it’s you. And in that way I think Jesus opens his heart to you and Jesus invites us to share his life and his love and to come to know him. To come to know him not only as or even perhaps primarily as Lord or God but first and foremost as friend.
