Who was the disciple John?

He was the brother of St. James & the son of Zebedee & Salome. He is called "the beloved disciple," because he was the one who remained with Our Lord while He was Crucified. Our Lord Gave St. John His Own Mother to be his (& ultimately our own too).

St. John is the only Apostle not to die a martyr.
