Distinguishing the Gospel of John from the Synoptic Gospels

There is a rich connection between the Gospel of John and the Hebrew Scriptures, which helps disclose its strong Hebraic foundations. The fourth gospel draws deeply from the ancient Hebrew tradition of wisdom and uses poetic form, not only to evoke emotion but also to convey deeper meaning in its parallel construction. Its narrative is more than a simple story. It is an ancient technique of haggadic midrash, which draws from the Hebrew Scriptures to convey a deeper and richer meaning than the plain and simple words disclose. Its use of irony and word-play are examples of ancient literary devices that convey deeper meaning.
