Chapter Summary

This conclusion presents a brief summary of the conclusions for each quotation of the Old Testament quotations in the gospel of John separately. Then a formulation of some general conclusions with respect to the quotations as a whole is presented. John 1:23 the quotation is in words of the Baptist in reply to Jews who asked him who he was. It occurs also in Mk 1:3=Mt 3:3=Lk 3:4. The formula, which, as in 17:12, follows the quotation, is: "Thus said Isaiah the prophet"; and it occurs nowhere else in the N.T. The source of the quotation is Is 40:3, but it is impossible to tell whether John used the Heb. or Gr. text. In view of the difference between Jn and the Synoptics there is no evidence for Jn's use of testimonia. Jn 2:17. The quotation is put in the words of Jesus' disciples immediately after the narrative of Jesus' cleansing of the temple.

Keywords: Isaiah; Jesus' disciples; Jews; John; New Testament; prophet; synoptics; testimonia
