Chapter Summary

The question of whether the Johannine Christ is described in almost docetic way as a divine being which, though in human form, but without human contestation over the earth, even though it progresses through the Passion, has long been seen by Kasemann again. Here it should be pointed only to a single train of the Fourth Gospel that does not fit into this picture into. It is abbreviated in thesis form and expressed: Jesus is not the Revelator, for John; he is the witness of God. Faith are, nothing of victory, but only the defeat of Jesus in mind. So it seems to the author that the often criticized "Docetism" the Johannine Christology ultimately nothing else than the radical nature, sees in John the earthly the all-important, the world-conquering victory of God.

Keywords: Docetism; witness of God; Johannine Christology; Jesus; Fourth Gospel
