INTRODUCTION
Within the Gospel of John lies a tremendous amount of texts that offer an element of controversy or irregularities. With some of the issues that are presented by these controversies, the question can be posed if the Gospel of John was authored by one or by a few different people. Looking at the scriptures and the placement of these things, it would appear that one wrote one thing and one wrote another and they all came together later. These texts or scriptures pose a problem to many readers of this gospel because they do not correspond either chronologically or topically and at times it appears that the narration seems to flow in a manner that is not consistent. The aporia for this particular assignment is the controversy of John 21. Does the same author as chapters 1-20 author this particular chapter, and if so, where did the controversy stem? By viewing commentaries by D.A. Carson, W. Hall Harris III and Leon Morris, we can bring evidence that this chapter along with chapters 1-20 were indeed authored by the same person, yet the time when it was written was at a much later date which would give way to the controversy.
