Thesis Statement # 3

2. The prologue gives a glimpse of the whole gospel in a poetic style with a profound philosophical and theological content.

"All things came to be through him and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it."

1. John's gospel expresses the important place of commitment to God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

last gospel to be written (100AD) in Asia minor, focus is on the Word incarnate

sets itself apart from the three synoptic gospels because it is most symbolic

Jesus Christ reveals God so we may believe in Him through the power of the Holy Spirit

focuses on Jesus going from city to city to make believers out of men

3. Seven signs in John tell stories of God's saving love in Jesus, the Incarnate Word.

the seven signs

Jesus goes beyond 'laws' and humbles himself to save

4. These small signs were part of God's speaking a word that creates and recreates.

God's word involves discourse and man's participation (faith)

God's speaking a word needs to be delivered to an "audience"

God's speaking a Word is for God to be glorified -- it is also a sign as much as it is a miraculous utterance

5. Spirituality in the gospel of John is intrinsically connected to morality.

evidenced by the various stories of Jesus not following the letter of the law

6. It is rooted in the covenant interiority of the glorified Jesus and His disciples.

Commitment between Jesus and disciples was based on faith and sometimes even when they could not grasp the entirety of what he was doing, they believed and it was good

commitment to Jesus is an involving process and not an automatic response as evidenced by some stories in the gospel of John
