Chapter Summary

This chapter comprises questions to what degree our analysis of St. John's use of the morphological categories of Koine Greek has helped to solve the different kinds of problems. The linguistic peculiarities as such do not point to a specific era or area. In solving these problems we shall have to remain dependent on non-linguistic evidence. As far as the morphological data can tell us we hold it highly improbable that both the Apc. and the Corpus Johanneum were composed by one and the same author, because several of the categories that are seldom used in the Apc. or not at all, are not unusual in the Johannine writings, such as the perfect indicative. The morphological data cannot furnish any answer to the question whether the linguistic background of St. John was Hebrew or Aramaic.

Keywords: Corpus Johanneum; intretation problems; Koine Greek; morphological categories; St. John
