  • This is the final volume in a series of pastoral commentaries on the gospel which seek to make available the best of scriptural scholarship to the non-specialist. The series will be of particular interest to preachers, teachers and those coming to scripture study for the first time. The gospels, at once historical and theological, proclaim Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ, the definitive revelation of God. Mark, Matthew and Luke do so along similar lines, but John is distinctly different. While in Matthew and Luke there is a tendency to stress what one might call the otherworldliness of Jesus, in John he seems something of a sojourner from another world. The synoptists wrote out of their Easter faith but they, to some extent, have allowed the historical Jesus to be seen and to speak. John has wholly imposed the Christ of faith upon the earthly Jesus. He has painted an icon. An icon brings out the spiritual significance of the subject. The Johannine icon represents the Jesus of faith, the risen Lord.
