Summary of John

Date: 90-110 C.E.

Description: John, the fourth and last canonical Gospel to be written, is significantly different enough from the other three to be considered distinct from the Synoptic tradition. John regards himself in the tradition of the disciple, "whom Jesus loved." and any proposed redactors would have considered themselves in the same tradition. Along with the epistles, the Gospel of John may be a part of a "Johannine school".
