The Gospel of John was written by John, one of Jesus’ twelve apostles. Even among the twelve, John was one of the three apostles (along with Peter and James) who were the closest to Jesus; The Gospel of John, also called "Book of John," is an eyewitness account written by someone very close to Jesus.

    * [–18] The prologue states the main themes of the gospel: life, light, truth, the world, testimony, and the preexistence of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Logos, who reveals God the Father. In origin, it was probably an early Christian hymn. According to the traditional order, the Gospel of St. John occupies the last place among the four canonical Gospels. Although in many of the ancient copies this Gospel was, on account of the Apostolic dignity of the author inserted immediately after or even before the Gospel of St. Matthew, the position it occupies today was from the beginning.
