About "Christology of the Fourth Gospel"
Christology is at the heart of the theology of the fourth gospel. Since Bultmann's impressive synthesis much has been written about its individual themes and motifs, its sources and history. The present study sets out to identify the basic structure of Johannine christology and to show how it underlies and integrates the various motifs and themes which surface in the transmitted text of the gospel. From the perspective gained through this analysis it re-examines the major issues of Johannine christology and their significance for understanding the gospel, both in its setting and in our own.
