Why did the 'disciple whom Jesus loved' not reveal his name in the passages where he is mentioned?


John 21:7

ESV - 7 That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he was stripped for work, and threw himself into the sea.

The disciple didn't reveal his name because he knew it was about Jesus, not himself.
