The Gospel According to John (also referred to as the Gospel of John, the Fourth Gospel, or simply John. The Gospel of John was written in Greek by an anonymous author. The gospel identifies its author as "the disciple whom Jesus loved." Although the text does not name this disciple, by the beginning of the 2nd century, a tradition had begun to form which identified him with John the Apostle, one of the Twelve.

Some notable New Testament scholars affirm another tradition. They trace it instead to a "Johannine community" which traced its traditions to John; the gospel itself shows signs of having been composed in three "layers", reaching its final form about 90–100 AD.

The gospel contains more direct claims to eyewitness origins than any of the other Gospel traditions.
