Dr. Paul Anderson, Professor of Biblical and Quaker Studies at George Fox University, observes that while some scholars have not viewed John’s Gospel as a reliable source of historical information because of its theological Christ-hymn in John 1:1-18, its Greek vocabulary and form actually suggest it was added to the Gospel by John the Elder after the death of the Beloved Disciple – a confessional affirmation of John's grounded story of Jesus similar to 1 John 1:1-3.
