Was Lazarus the beloved disciple?

A fascinating article posted by NT scholar Ben Witherington argues that 'the disciple whom Jesus loved' mentioned in the fourth Gospel is not the apostle John (as traditionally understood), but Lazarus, whom he raised from the dead. Long, but worth a read if you're interested in who wrote the fourth Gospel and why it might matter.

Wow. For those who want a taster: look at John 11:3 and then 13:23...could they be the same person? And then look at 12:2 and ...ok... you'd better read the article :-)

Yeah - I really enjoyed the last bit where he talked about the effects of reading it that way and why "John" feels different to the synoptics (esp re Christology) - i.e. how could someone who had been raised from the dead not shout Jesus' identity from the rooftops?
