    My Dear Sweet Friend

    We art sure it was Saint John.  He wrote what we callest "The Book of Love".  He wrote a Gospel, 3 epistles, and Revelations.  Jesus treasured John because John's heart was purified with Love. 

    Jesus spoke seldom of John.  We believe this was because He didst not desire to show favortism.

    I cannot believe that no one has answered this for you in all this time. Here is the correct answer:

    1st- NO on Lazarus (he may have been an early disciple, BUT WAS NOT one of the "Twelve Aposltes"), and was only mentioned in one case (John 11:5), where Jesus had a high regard and "cared for" (loved) the entire family of Lazarus.

    NEXT: the Disciple Whom “Jesus Loved” is JOHN, the brother of James (one of the "four fisherman"), and one of the 1st four disciples called by Jesus (one of the "Twelve Aposltes"). The evidence in scripture is more favorable for this being true.

    I've just finished a HubPages series of articles on the Apostles, where the "beloved disciple" is featured in more detail:
