GROWTH GROUP / PERSONAL REFLECTION QUESTIONS
1. The Beloved Disciple is never identified in the Gospel of John, nor in the other gospels. From the end of the Gospel of John, though, we know that his testimony serves as the basis for this Gospel. Why do you think the Gospel of John presents the Beloved Disciple as anonymous?
2. Do you ever compare yourself to others? Is there someone specific in your life you've regularly compared yourself to?
3. Do you ever find yourself looking down on someone's else's faith because they believe differently than you do, or express their faith differently than you do?
4. When Peter becomes focused on the Beloved Disciple, Jesus emphatically tells Peter, "You follow me." What lessons can we take from Jesus' instruction to Peter?
