The Gospel and Epistles of John BIB522

Instructor: The Gospel and Epistles of John BIB522

This study appreciates the distinctive contribution that John’s Gospel makes to the Christian faith
and the life of the church. The Gospel’s witness to Jesus Christ will be at the center of the study. The
study will combine various approaches of inquiry, including the inductive method of Bible study,
historical background and setting, narrative analysis, great themes of the Gospel, and the formative
role of John’s Gospel in Christian theology through the centuries. By attending to the prominent role
of symbols in the narrative, the study will probe the Gospel’s rich potential for feeding and
informing spirituality and theology. (MDiv 1, 3; MACF 1, 2)
