Some right now might consider me a heretic and want to stone me for even asking such a question. However there are those within the gay community who would insist they were (lovers), and this can be proven from the Bible. So who's right?
There are only five scriptures that speak of any special love between Jesus and the Apostle John. They are as follows:
"Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved." (John 13:23 NKJV)
"When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, 'Woman, behold your son!'" (John 19:26)
