    The author reconstructs the background and intellectual milieu out of which the Fourth Gospel may be supposed to have taken shape. He then defines as precisely as possible the leading concepts that may be said to have determined the structure and arrangement of the book as we have it. Authorship The Apostle John is usually credited with the authorship of the fourth Gospel. First of all, the author had to have been an eyewitness of the ministry of Jesus (; ; ).He would have also had a decent familiarity with Palestine before the destruction of the temple in AD 70, and would have been familiar with the Jewish way of life.

    The Gospel according to John has a number of points of contact with the three synoptic Gospels but differs considerably from them in content and therefore not all Gospel synopses display the book of John. The fourth canonical gospel of John differs significantly from the synoptics in terms of Christology, which is the field of study within.

John is the last Gospel and, in many ways, different from the Synoptic question in the Synoptic Gospels concerns the extent to which the divine reality broke into history in Jesus’ coming, and the answers are given in terms of the closeness of the new age.

In The Composition and Order of the Fourth Gospel D. Moody Smith engages the masterful commentary on John by Rudolf Bultmann, evaluating critically his views of John's sources, order, redaction, and meaning. A book every bit as helpful for understanding Bultmann's work as the work itself, this book is now made accessible in paperback form fifty years after its original publication.

""D. Moody Smith's Composition and Order of the Fourth Gospel is an important milestone in American New Testament scholarship. Smith lays out in a clear and well-organized way the complex theory of Rudolf Bultmann about the fashioning of the Fourth Gospel, while also offering a respectful critique of the theory.

The Gospel of John, the fourth of the gospels, is a highly schematic account of the ministry of Jesus, with seven "signs" culminating in the raising of Lazarus (foreshadowing the resurrection of Jesus) and seven "I am" discourses culminating in Thomas's proclamation of the risen Jesus as "my Lord and my God"; the concluding verses set out its purpose, "that you may believe that Jesus is the.

Although the Gospel is ostensibly written by St. John the Apostle, “the beloved disciple” of Jesus, there has been considerable discussion of the actual. Finally this book will challenge the way the Fourth Gospel has been used in Christian history as the guarantor of what came to be called Christian orthodoxy or creedal Christianity.

The Council of Nicea in C.E. leaned on the Fourth Gospel as literal history in order to formulate the creeds and ultimately to undergird such doctrines as the. This is the first comprehensive study of St John's Gospel for nearly forty years. The author provides new and coherent answers to its two most important questions: the position of the Gospel in the history of Christian thought, and its central or governing idea.

In the course of the book, helooks at the Gospel from a variety of viewpoints: historical, literary, and theological. John's Gospel was the fourth gospel, written early in the second century. It differs more from the other, 'synoptic' gospels, having limited input direct from Mark and was mainly inspired by Luke.

/   A Composite Gospel This Composite Gospel using the text from The World English Bible (WEB) combines the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) plus a few verses from Acts and 1 Corinthians into one text.

I doubt whether the same can be said of the literature about the Fourth Gospel, which bears a much closer resemblance to the vast Atlantic ocean as viewed from Europe before the time of Columbus: it appears deep, stormy, treacherous and uncrossable.

Gospel according to Saint John, fourth book of the New Testament. This account of Jesus' life is clearly set off from the other three Gospels (see Synoptic Gospels), although it is probable that John knew and used both Mark and Luke as Gospel opens with a prologue in which Jesus is identified with the Word (see Logos).This term echoes usages of the Old Testament ("Word of God.

Combined with a concern with. Point #4: A variety of arguments against John's (inspired) authorship of the fourth Gospel are centered on the linguistically and stylized differences between the fourth Gospel and the 3 Epistles attributed to John and the Book of Revelation (only in Revelation does the name "John" actually appear as the one who wrote down the visions).

The fourth gospel may have drawn on various sources, including the other gospels (hence, some of the same stories), but the author(s) of John’s gospel also did a lot of creative writing. Jesus’ speeches were probably fabricated for this gospel.

Much of John’s gospel seems to be intended to revise the synoptics’ versions of Jesus. I. Introduction A.
