As the first three Quests for Jesus have excluded the Gospel of John programmatically since the work of David F. Strauss in , this calls for more inclusive quest—a fourth quest—in the new millennium. A And, in the light of archaeological and material soundings, that quest has only just begun. His own book on the subject (The Fourth Gospel and the Quest for Jesus) argues for a more nuanced view, arguing also a new paradigm for understanding John’s composition, relations to other traditions, and likely contributions to the quest for Jesus.
When Jesus breaks the fourth seal, the Holy Spirit will leave Heaven’s temple and begin a campaign of horrific death and destruction which is beyond our ability to comprehend. The fourth living creature has a face of an eagle. (Revelation ) Eagles are birds of prey and are predators.

The Gospel of John, the fourth of the gospels, is a highly schematic account of the ministry of Jesus, with seven "signs" culminating in the raising of Lazarus (foreshadowing the resurrection of Jesus) and seven "I am" discourses culminating in Thomas's proclamation of the risen Jesus as "my Lord and my God"; the concluding verses set out its purpose, "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, .

It gets relegated to the pulpit as the "fourth Gospel," as if it didn't deserve a name. Recent archaeological discoveries, however, have proven John's Gospel spot-on in a number of its claims.
John is also the one Gospel that claims to be an eye-witness account.5/5(2). In his book, The Fourth Gospel and the Quest for Jesus (T&T Clark, ), he argued for a “dialogical autonomy of the fourth Gospel,” and he calls the relationship between John and the other Gospels a “Bi-Optic Hypothesis,” because it stresses the two main traditions: Markan and Johannine.
The Fourth Gospel calls on the faithful to believe that Jesus achieved ‘the mystical oneness with the God who is the source of life.’” (Publishers Weekly) “In his 24th book, The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic, the always provocative Bishop John Shelby Spong takes on the Gospel of John, opening new windows of insight and challenging the ways the fourth gospel has Reviews: In that sense, the John, Jesus and History Project—as well as my own work on the Fourth Gospel and the quest for Jesus—is driven by the judgment that the first three quests for Jesus have overlooked an extremely important resource: the Gospel of John as an independent Jesus tradition, which, though highly theological, also has its own worthy claims to historicity.
The fourth Gospel: The Gospel According to John Uniqueness of John. John is the last Gospel and, in many ways, different from the Synoptic question in the Synoptic Gospels concerns the extent to which the divine reality broke into history in Jesus’ coming, and the answers are given in terms of the closeness of the new age.
John, from the very beginning, presents Jesus in terms of. Finally this book will challenge the way the Fourth Gospel has been used in Christian history as the guarantor of what came to be called Christian orthodoxy or creedal Christianity. The Council of Nicea in C.E. leaned on the Fourth Gospel as literal history in order to formulate the creeds and ultimately to undergird such doctrines as the Incarnation and the Holy Trinity.
The Fourth Gospel is deeply shaped by its remarkably high Christology. It depicts the earthly Jesus, the incarnate one, as fully divine. This unrelenting Christology has led interpreters, both ancient and modern, to question the historical value of John’s Gospel.
For many, the Gospel is just theology. Following this to the end of the fourth Gospel, I began to notice several places where John deliberately weaves together various strands of Kingdom and Passover imagery in depicting Jesus’ trial and passion.
The result was to draw a little nearer to what Jesus meant when he said, “It is finished” (John ). In The Adaptable Jesus of the Fourth Gospel, Jason S.
Sturdevant argues that the Gospel of John portrays Jesus as an adaptable teacher, who accommodates to different people in various ways to a singular end, to bring each to faith. In the same wa See More. "John the Baptist in the Fourth Gospel" published on 27 Jul by Brill.

Albert Schweitzer, The Quest of the Historical Jesus (2nd German edition ; English, ) This great polymath achieved the seemingly impossible in writing a sprawling history of Jesus research in the 18th and 19th centuries that ended up as one of the most fascinating books on Jesus ever written.
The quest for the historical Jesus consists of academic efforts to determine what words and actions, if any, may be attributed to Jesus, and to use the findings to provide portraits of the historical Jesus. Since the 18th century, three scholarly quests for the historical Jesus have taken place, each with distinct characteristics and based on different research criteria, which were often.
I must admit, however, that I am truly excited about recommending John Shelby Spong’s newest book, The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic. At times this book feels more like a detective novel than a scholarly work.
Spong starts with his desire to figure out how the unusual book came to be, who was the author and why was it written.A timely and important book. It examines the theme of mission in the Fourth Gospel in a fresh and distinctive way, and it makes a significant contribution to our overall understanding of the Gospel, the person and work of Jesus, and the relationship of his mission to that of the disciples.
Andreas Kostenberger's in depth study creatively integrates bibical studies, theology, and missiology.The old quest had presumably ended in and the new one begun in with the first edition of Bornkamm's book on Jesus. However, the new quest died aborning because it attempted to establish some continuity between the historical Jesus and the early Christian proclamation.
