    In this article, we examine the evidence for the Gospel of John. Who wrote the Fourth Gospel? As we have in previous articles, this article will look at the proposed author, the internal and external evidences for authorship, the dating, and the location and intended audience for the Fourth Gospel. In Against Heresies, Irenaeus spends the first two books understanding the Gnostics and refuting them at every turn.[1] His arguments are logical, but more importantly they are biblical. In contradistinction from Justin Martyr and Origen, who baptize philosophy with Christian truth and nomenclature, Irenaeus is a biblical apologist in the purest sense.

    Dating the Fourth Gospel The idea that John Mark wrote a Gospel account is neither radical, nor a new idea; he has long been identified in tradition as the author of the Gospel of Mark. In an earlier chapter we looked in more detail at the provenance of Mark’s account. The first two books of Irenæus Against Heresies have been translated by Dr. Roberts. The groundwork of the translation of the third book, and that portion of the fourth book which is continued in this volume, has been furnished by the Rev. W. H. Rambaut.

    This is the first criticism of the Fourth Gospel of which we have any record, made at the time when the book was first sent forth, made in a postscript to the epilogue or appendix. Possibly the book closed first with Joh , but chapter 21 is in precisely the same style and was probably added before publication by . The authorship of the Johannine works (the Gospel of John, Epistles of John, and the Book of Revelation) has been debated by scholars since at least the 2nd century AD. [1] The main debate centers on who authored the writings, and which of the writings, if any, can be ascribed to a common author. Ancient tradition attributes all the books to John the Apostle.
