In this article the tendency to interpret John 21:24-25 narratologically as a
highly sophisticated and effective technique is disputed. Instead it is argued
that the Beloved Disciple is identified in these verses as the real author of
the Gospel and that the dominating function in John 21 :24-25 is the
testimonial function (also known as the function of attestation). It is also
argued that the intended effect of this junction is undermined by the
awkward manner in which it is fulfilled.
