Chapter Summary

The aim of this chapter has been twofold: 1. to discuss the agreements between John 2:13-22; 5:1-18; 6:51- 58 and the Synoptics against the background of the two mutually independent traditions recorded in 1 Cor 10:3-4, 16, 17, 21; 11:23-34, and Mark 14:22-25. The conclusion is that the agreements between John 2:13-22; 6:51-58 and the Synoptics are neither closer, nor more striking, than those between the above-mentioned Pauline passages and Mark, and in the case of John 5:1-18 there are even fewer agreements with the Synoptics. To this extent the analysis of these three Johannine passages supports the hypothesis that John and the Synoptics are mutually independent. 2. To throw light upon the transmission of tradition and the expository and paraphrasal usage of it in the Gospel. Here the transmission and expository use of the eucharistic tradition in 1 Cor 10 and 11 have proved to be relevant and parallel.

Keywords: eucharistic tradition; gospel; John; Mark; Pauline passages; Synoptics
