This paper discusses how the "Book of John" is symbolic and stresses the theme of Jesus's deity and how it supplies additional information that the Synoptic Gospels do not provide. In particular, it examines how John records Jesus's "I am" statements and analyzes these statements and their significance to John's audience. It shows how the book, through the statements, offers us a deeper understanding of God's relationship with man through Jesus and how John's portrait of Jesus illustrates over and over the deity of Jesus, a belief essential in the life of every believer.
From the Paper:"The predominant theme in John's gospel is the deity of Christ. T. A. Bryant, who compiled Today's Dictionary of Bible says that In the book of John, "there is in historical form a representation of Christian faith in relation to the person of Christ as its central point; and in this representation there is a picture on the one hand of the antagonism of the of the world to the truth revealed to him, and on the other of the spiritual blessedness of the few who yield themselves to him as the Light of Life" (Bryant 349). Along with the magnificence of Jesus' deity, John also portrays Jesus in a genuine and personal way to his readers."
