Michael T Winstanley SDB
The Gospel according to John immediately strikes the reader as being different from the other three (Synoptic) Gospels. It contains fewer episodes or stories, and offers longer speeches or discourses by Jesus. Another insightful examination of the Gospel by Fr Michael.

The Gospels are pieces of literature, written by competent writers for a particular clientèle, using the literary techniques of their time. In this introduction to the evangelist, Fr Michael examines John's use of symbols, symbolic people and symbolic actions or gestures: wine, bread, light, water, the shepherd, vines, and the acts of anointing and washing feet. Following this, Fr Michael explores the Passion Narrative and John's presentation of the resurrection of Jesus.
