John, who was one of the sons of Zebedee, was called “the disciple whom Jesus loved” six times in the narrative of the Gospel of St. John, or the Fourth Gospel. In his left hand, he carries the book of his Gospel. With his other hand, he raises the chalice, in reference to Christ’s words to John in Matthew 20:23: "And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father."
