The disciple loved by Jesus is here represented at a very young age, with a severe expression on his handsome face, his eyes half-closed, with an attitude of contemplation of the symbol of an eagle, which evidently alludes to the relationship with the voice of God. The scroll we see on his desk certainly is part of his work, written in Greek. Also here it is difficult to make out the writing in the painting. Paradoxically it is possible to read the Latin word lux, visible twice, a fundamental concept in the fourth Gospel, so different from the other three.
