The books traditionally associated with John the Apostle constitute a major portion of the Christian New Testament. The influence of these books, particularly the Gospel according to John and the book of Revelation, has been immense both in Christianity and in Western culture. This study provides a fresh examination of how these books were accepted—or not accepted—in the early Church, and in so doing demonstrates why long-held theories about them must be discarded and replaced.
