Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the Gospel of the Acts of John (GAJ), which is found in chapters 87-105 of the Acts of John. Chapters in the GAJ contain a complete gospel narrative, which has been preserved independently of the rest of the book - with clear signs, however, that at some point it formed part of the Acts of John. The chapter reviews the most important parallels between the GAJ and the Fourth Gospel. It then discusses evidence that forces us to look beyond the previous research positions. The chapter also shows how the author's hypothesis explains the present shape of the sources. Various features of the GAJ challenge the majority view that this gospel relied on the Fourth Gospel. The chapter shows that the polymorphic Christology of the GAJ does not originate in post-resurrection narratives.

Keywords: Fourth Gospel; Gospel of the Acts of John; polymorphic Christology
