St. John - A Bible Saint With Many Titles

- John 19:26-27

Saint John the Evangelist could be called by many different titles:   

A Son Of Zebedee

A Son Of Salome

The Brother Of James

A Fisherman

A Disciple Of John The Baptist

An Apostle
An Evangelist

The Beloved Disciple

A Pillar of the Church

Along with his brother James he is called, “Boanerges”  (BOH-uh-NUHR-jeez), which means “Sons of Thunder.”

One More Special Role
John had one more role which could earn him the title of “John, the Guardian of Mary.” 

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved,
he said to his mother,
"Woman, behold your son."
Then he said to the disciple,
"Behold, your mother."
And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
