Jesus, as depicted in the Fourth Gospel, is remarkably dissimilar to the Jesus found in the synoptic gospels. This book places the Gospel of John within its proper literary, historical, social and theological contexts through a systematic, passage-by-passage commentary. What emerges is an argument that the Gospel of John has an agenda for mission, in addition to concerns for discipleship and community life. The book raises questions which are typically asked by first time students, and which concern issues like the harmonization of the different gospel accounts, the alleged exclusivist nature of the Church and evidence for the Resurrection. It is accessible to the scholar, the teacher and the priest.
