Gospel of John

The Gospel of John is a masterpiece of theological history. Its authenticity and textual reliability are outstanding. Negative criticism of the book usually stems from its “otherness” relative to the synoptic gospels. “It is obvious to the most casual reader that John has features which are strikingly different from the synoptic gospels” (Guthrie, 248). As this introduction will seek to demonstrate, the Gospel of John stands wonderfully tall as a glorious work of inspired Scripture, inerrant and infallible—the word of God.

 

Summary

The Gospel of John was written by the Apostle John, son of Zebedee, near the end of his life (ca. AD 90-100). The purpose of the book is plainly stated (cf. 20:31) as a written testimony of selected details witnessing to the historical and spiritual realities of the person and work of Jesus of Nazareth, most importantly identified as the divine Christ—the Son of God, who is God (cf. 1:1, 18; 20:28), so that readers would believe in Him and in so doing have eternal life.
