      Can anybody please tell me if they know who the author of the following is:
      *****************************************************************************************************************

      JOHN MARK AND THE ORIGIN OF THE FOURTH GOSPEL



      There are four appearances in the Fourth Gospel of a person identified
      only as the disciple whom Jesus loved. The claim is made that the Gospel
      incorporates his written, eyewitness account of things that Jesus did
      (John 21:24). According to tradition, his name was John, and he has been
      further identified as the son of Zebedee.



      In a thesis I submitted to New York University in 1970 and published in
      1979, I suggested that the Beloved Disciple was John, also called Mark,
      who was Peter's flesh-and-blood son (1 Peter 5:13). I advanced the
      hypothesis that Mark wrote a foundation document, designated G for
      Grundschrift, which was used by the author of the Fourth Gospel.



      In this paper I suggest that the community of the Beloved Disciple which
      produced the Fourth Gospel was one of the Egyptian churches founded by
      Mark, probably in Alexandria. The Alexandrian origin of the Fourth
      Gospel was first set forth in 1820. J. J. Gunther presented arguments
      for this in 1979 in the Catholic Biblical Quarterly.
