Item description for The Quest for the Origin of John's Gospel: A Source-Oriented Approach by Thomas L. Brodie...

This is a controversial thesis concerning the composition of the Gospel According to John. Most New Testament scholars believe that John was independent of the other three (Synoptic) Gospels, although some hold that he may have been familiar with Mark. This has led many to attempt to reconstruct the history of the community within which and for which John must have written. Brodie argues, however, that until the source question is settled, the historical question remains fruitless. What has been missing from Johannine scholarship, he says, is an accurate sense of the way in which writers of the ancient world set about composing their works. Given this literary context, it can be argued that John knew and used not only all of the Synoptic Gospels, but Acts, Ephesians, and the Pentateuch as well. Brodie concludes that John was the individual John and not the mouthpiece of a putative Johannine Community.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Quest for the Origin of John's Gospel: A Source-Oriented Approach?

Useful Reference Source for the Gospel of John  Apr 28, 2006
This book takes a very scholarly approach to the fourth gospel. Brodie presents influences upon John, including Gnosticism, Hellenism, and Judaism. The first quarter of the book is historical, including the history of scholarship on the writing of the gospels. The middle half of the book, the most useful, can aid in the exegesis of the gospels if used with the Bible. Many tables illustrate the similarities of the gospels, and John's use of several sources, including the other gospels, the Pentateuch and Paul's letter to the Ephesians. The final part of the book is reference, including appendices, indexes, and an extensive bibliography. From Church & Synagogue Libraries 28 (July-Aug. 1994) 15.
