Show Summary Details


This chapter examines John's narrative about the death and resurrection of Jesus. Like the Synoptics, John maintains the apostolic pattern: Jesus died, Jesus was buried, Jesus has been raised, and Jesus appeared. That is as much the climax of the Fourth Gospel as it now stands as it is of Paul's tradition and of Mark's, Mathew's, and Luke's narratives. At the same time, in his presentation of these things—and particularly the crucifixion—John's emphasis is different from that of the Synoptics.
