**I am begining to believe the Apostle John was a Disciple, first, of John the Baptist.**

Possibly, but in the Gospel account Christ calls Peter and Andrew and then John and James — all fishermen. I don’t believe there is any reference to John the Baptist at all.

When you get to heaven, they say, all your questions will be answered, and you will have no more!

Yes, you are correct. John the Fisherman was the brother of James, both the sons of Zebedee, to whom the Lord Jesus Christ refered to as "The Sons of Thunder"

My interest was in finding out how much John the Baptist and John the Apostle concentrated on the relationship within the Holy Trinity. Most folks concentrate on John the Baptists ministry preparing the way and calling folks to repentance. But John the Baptist's beliefs in John 3 is remarkably exact with the rest of the chapter. Especially on "has Eternal Life". (verse 36).

The Doctrine is precise and exquisite.
