Stringio Nathan Toronga Christian Elder.
That disciple was John himself.

John, as writer of the Gospel of John, never referred to himself by name in the book of John. He always referred to himself anonymously. He seems to have been a bit shy, because when he finally wrote the book of Revelation, he was now very mature and bold.

I hope this answers your question.
