“There was reclining on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.” (NASV John 13.23)

Most people substitute what their pastor has said for thinking on anything relating to the Bible. Need we say riches beyond comprehension lie deep beyond the party line?

Minister-at-large, Ted Ciuba and Chaplain Oscar Smith, America’s most loved minister, have recently completed a project they began in tandem some months back, the completion of their respective manuscripts on books pertaining to the Gospel of John.

This makes them more than a little qualified to speak on the topic, because the Gospel of John is the only place where this individual is identified as such, and they’ve spent the greatest part of their life energies the last 4 months in that gospel.

  • Who is this mysterious “disciple whom Jesus loved”?
  • Is word choice important?: Reclining, bosom, loved
  • Why is it important to mention Jesus’ love for this individual five times?
  • Was the author dodging something or saying something?
  • Everyone knows “he knew his wife” means something more than it says…
  • What does “reclining on Jesus’ bosom” mean in a Biblical sense?

This session is for those willing use the neural circuits the creator gave them, because you won’t hear your pastor talking on this theme.
