From the Paper:

"In order for one to aptly grasp the full spectrum of information that this research based analysis offers, it is crucial for the reader to understand the title of this work; The Christology of the Gospel of John, and what the words Gospel and Christology truly signify. Gospel, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, 'The glad tidings (of the kingdom of God)' announced to the world by Jesus Christ. Hence, the body of religious doctrine taught by Christ and His apostles; the Christian revelation, religion or dispensation (OED). Secondly, the word Christology, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, is that part of theology which relates to Christ; a doctrine or theory concerning Christ (OED). With these definitions, it is easy to ascertain the fact that this scholarly text will not be a simple summary and commentary of the gospel of John's accounts of Jesus, but will be a comprehensive analysis and interpretation of the many facets entwined within the gospel's structure. As a result of the six page restraint placed upon this dissertation, the text will mainly focus upon the issues of authorship surrounding John's gospel, as well as providing a special focus on the Christological/Theological differences evident between John's Gospel and the three synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. This text will take into consideration and incorporate details concerning the context (time/place of composition) of John's Gospel, possible sources contributed in the Gospel's construction, and unique literary features that enable the reader's a better understanding of the Gospel's literary style and technique."
