The Gospel of John is one of most distinguished books in the Bible. It has unique literary and theological dimensions that we will explore together in details. The book is divided into the book of signs (John 1-12) and the book of the hour (13-21). In the book of signs we discover how the coming of Christ rereads major first century Pharasaic beliefs. This rereading is significant for Christians today especially for a more nuanced understanding of the relationship of Israel and the church. In addition, The second part of the Gospel of John highlights the missional identity in light of the centrality of Christ. Both parts of the book are addressed in a missional way that takes into consideration the contemporary Palestinian context.
