This course studies the Gospel of John, beginning with an overview of its structure and contents, and continuing with detailed exegesis of many key passages. Special emphasis is placed on the work as a late, highly creative example of an already established genre, whose exemplars (i.e. the Synoptic Gospels) were well known to the author of the Fourth Gospel. Special theological emphases of John, attested also in the Johannine letters, will often appear as further, sometimes dramatized developments of insights already present in the earlier gospel tradition.
