Item Description...
John's relationship to the other canonical Gospels has from Christian antiquity been the subject of serious discussion and debate. Did John know them? Did he use them as sources for his own "spiritual" gospel? If so, can his eccentricities in using them be explained? In John among the Gospels D. Moody Smith confronts these questions, describing how the relationship of the Fourth Gospel to the Synoptics has been understood, particularly in modern biblical scholarship.

John's difference from the other gospel narratives was recognized by such ancient Christian writers as Clement of Alexandria in the late second century, Origen in the early third century, and Eusebius in the early fourth century, who set the stage for opposing views of John's relation to the Synoptics. John was deemed either compatible with, if supplementary to, the other canonical Gospels, as Clement and Eusebius believed, or obviously at odds historically with the companion works, according to Origen's opposing view.

These two essential interpretive views have played out to the present day. Smith summarizes the theories and countertheories that have driven Johannine scholarship since the time of the early church, clarifying the interrelationship among commentators at the same time that he offers an insightful overview of this key issue in Johannine studies.

In a new, final chapter included in the second edition of John among the Gospels, Smith emphasizes the difficulty of determining what constitutes redaction and how the apparently reductional or compositional elements found their way into the Gospel of John. Using the Gospel of Mark as his primary point of reference, Smith probes the difficulties involved indiscerning how John understood and used the Synoptics, if indeed John knew or used them at all.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Report Card on Johannine Studies  Apr 4, 2007
D. Moody Smith presents for us here a report and review of the state of Johannine studies in the 20th century. Who better than D. Moody Smith himself, who is no slouch when it comes to John studies. As a guided tour of what is important, what is in vogue, what was once in vogue, what is now dated, etc. D. Moody Smith excels here. This is not so much a book about the gospel of John as it is a book about books on the gospel of John, and as such has no rivals. My copy has been well used and underlined.
A Forschungsbericht for the Gospel of John   Apr 29, 2006
One of the leading Johannine scholars updates his book which is a forschungsbericht (a progress report) on the Gospel of John and its relationship to the others gospels. The work focuses solely on the twentieth century (only briefly is mentioned the church fathers who call this gospel "spiritual"--cf. Clement of Alexandria--and generally view John as the gospel attempt to supplement or add to the others). The dicussion of the book centers on the problem of John and its relationship with the synoptics gospels. Because John contains material that both agrees and disagrees with the synoptics, it begs the question, "Did John know the other gospels and if so why did he deviate from them?" In the history of the discussion some have interpreted John one of four ways: (1) supplemental to synoptics, (2) interpretative of them, (3) independent from them (the major view of the twentieth century which was advocated by P. Gardner-Smith), (4) or written to displace them (Windisch is the leading proponent of this view)
