oa Conspectus : The Journal of the South African Theological Seminary - An Introduction to the Johannine Gospel and Letters, J. van der Watt : book review

Volume 6, Issue 09
  • ISSN : 1996-8167



The first chapter descriptionbes the structure and purpose of the gospel of John and its relationship with the Letters. Van der Watt notes that the narrative flow of the gospel is such that the chronological account is not as important as the thematic account - ""It is the message and not the events that dominate the narrative"" (p. 12). Thus the emphasis in this introductory book is clearly on John's theology.
