Jesus Loved John

Jesus chose twelve men to follow Him. Jesus worked with these men for several years. Three of these men — Peter, James and John — were especially close to Jesus.
In our Bible verses today, we learn more about John. We do not know which of Jesus’ disciples were there when He died on the cross. But verse 26 mentions “the follower he loved very much.” That follower was John. John was there with Jesus when He died. When Jesus saw John, He told John to take care of Mary, His mother.
John may have been the youngest of the twelve disciples, but Jesus respected and loved him. John became a leader in the early church. Later John served Jesus by writing the New Testament books of John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and Revelation.
Jesus loved John. And Jesus loves you, too! Be like John and serve Jesus today.
