The role of Jesus’ special knowledge in the plot of the Fourth Gospel
Tripp, Jeffrey Michael
MetadataShow full item record
The Gospel of John portrays Jesus as specially informed through his relationship with the Father, leading most commentators to refer to Jesus as the Revealer in this gospel. Jesus does not reveal uniformly throughout the gospel, strategically choosing who receives more or less information about him and his mission. This choice is guided by the dual-aspect of his mission: to be crucified and to establish a small group of disciples who will spread the understanding that will come with the completion of Jesus’ earthly mission.
