Compare (and contrast)

“The Synoptic gospel comprises of Mathew, Mark, and Luke” (Neyrey, 2007). However, the
synoptic gospels and the gospel of John have similarities and differences. One of the similarities
between both is that all of them tell the story of Jesus Christ. All the four proclaim the story through
a narrative format whereby they discuss Jesus Christ’s significant categories such as birth, his
ministry in public, his death, and his resurrection. Also, both the John and Synoptic gospels
reference the majority of the similar individual event during Jesus Christ’s ministry in general. For
instance, both Mark and John explained the feeding of the five thousand men as well as other
multiple events (Neyrey, 2007). Additionally, all of the four center their argument on Jesus’
teachings comprising of the new covenant reality, the call for repentance, the God’s kingdom
nature of elevation, and Jesus’ divine nature among many others.
However, the gospel of John and the Synoptic gospels have differences. For instance, the synoptic
gospels cover similar events throughout the ministry and life course of Jesus Christ. Also, they
significant on many of the miracles, proclamations, discourses, and confrontations. Therefore,
Mark, Mathew, and Mark follow a specific broader script. In contrary to this, John’s gospel doesn’t
support the script and instead, it describes events in its way this could be divided into four subbooks.

Describe the Johannine prologue in terms of plot and character (John 1:1-18).

The Johannine prologue is different compared to how the Synoptic gospels articulate the beginning
of their writings. John has a unique way of commencing and unique plot and character. Firstly, in
the first two verses, (1: 1-2) it speaks about the word and the God. The prologue only focuses on
the relationship of humankind and God instead of God’s relation. Verses three, four, and five



touches on the creation and the world. Moreover, it outlines how through God everything came
into existence. However, verses six to thirteen, (1: 6-13) describes word coming as the world’s
light where it can be divided into two such that verses six to nine focus on John the Baptist and the
word while fro verses ten to thirteen its touches of the response of the world towards the word.
Furthermore, from verse fourteen to eighteen (1: 14-18), John outlined about Word’s glory within
the flesh (Bultmann, 1963). Also, this is divided into four parts whereby verse fourteen touches on
word’s incarnation while verse fifteen describes John the Baptist’s testimony. Verse sixteen and
seventeen focuses on the real word’s superiority, and verse eighteen demonstrates the Father’s

Explain John’s use of signs and (symbolic) discourses.

After the prologue which runs up to verse eighteen, John chose several events by Jesus to discuss.
Several individuals name that part (1: 19 - 12: 50) as the book of signs. The first use of sign in the
gospel of John is during the event where Jesus c...
