- An adjective applied both to children (1 Cor. 4:17) and to adult Christians (1 Pet. 2:11) and even to Christ (Eph. 1:6, though there the Greek uses the perfect passive participle of the verb as a noun). The ‘Beloved Disciple’ is mentioned in the gospel of John as especially close to Jesus (13:23–5) and as the author of the gospel (21:24). He has traditionally been regarded as John the disciple, but the identification is not made in the gospel.
