OK. Each to his own.I don't think that John wrote that gospel ...
Why? Barring accidents, one could expect the three-score-years-and-ten...And that suggests that John lived in to the 2nd century. I don't expect that the lifetime of the average Gennesaret boatman would have been more than 50ish years.
A point much discussed by scholars. The essence being that John knew the testimonies that would become the Synoptics, and saw no need to repeat them. He perhaps alludes to it (1:14), but then again, his Christ is the Transfigured Christ from the get-go.I acknowledge your opinion, but in that case he either forgot about or missed out the most astonishing and important event in his lifetime, one which Cephas wrote about as the centre of his faith.
