Tell All and Sundry  Aug 10, 2008
Fr. Karris, a research professor and past president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, does a masterful job of showing the sequence of John's Gospel while drawing attention to internal connections. His main framework emphasizes key signs and "representative figures." The seven signs include (1) changing water into wine at Cana, (2) curing the son of a Galilean official from a distance, (3) curing a man who had been ill for 38 years, (4) multiplying barley loaves to feed a crowd, (5) walking on water, (6) healing a man born blind, and (7) raising Lazarus from the dead. Within the exploration of these signs, Karris singles out a number of figures at various stages of faith who serve as models for those who follow. The Blessed Mother, for example, waited patiently for salvation and blessings from Jesus. Lazarus' sister Mary showed generosity when she washed Jesus' feet with perfume.

One of John's main purposes in writing was to bolster the faith of early Christians. Fr. Karris extends that effort by relating challenges presented in John's gospel to those facing modern believers. Commenting on the "steadfast witness" of John the Baptist despite the displeasure of authorities, he asks how we might respond in similar circumstances. In his closing paragraph he calls forth the representative figure of the Samaritan woman, encouraging us to imitate her: "Tell all and sundry what Jesus has done for you."
