The authorship of the 'Gospel of John' has been debated over the centuries, and no one is entirely certain of who wrote it to this day. There is evidence to support various claims of authorship, and this paper argues the case for New Testament figure John the Baptist, cousin of Jesus, as the book's author. Support for this theory comes from a number of sources, including textual evidence in the 'Gospels'. The considerations of the Baptist's identity and background must be considered in this discussion, as well, as 'The Gospel of John' was written in a very different style from the other gospels, which may be reflective of John the Baptist's unique and radically different personality and overall personal style. John the Baptist was Jesus' cousin, son of Elizabeth who was Mary's cousin, and was only 6 months older than Jesus.
