The course will consist of an exegetical study of the Fourth Gospel, focusing on John's important thematic and theological issues. Lectures will cover a wide range of issues including the structure, syntax, and cultural background in relation to the major theme of belief in Jesus Christ. There will be careful analysis of individual texts and how they function in the narrative development of the whole gospel. Special emphasis will be given to the contrasted themes of light and darkness, life and death, truth and falsehood, love and hate as they relate to the revelation of the person and the work of Jesus Christ.
