Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author shows to what extent John agreed with the massive Christological emphasis on the miraculous in Sand based his theology on it. The author states, a mere miracle-faith is inadequate, but this does not mean the miracles cannot be a real help on the way to faith. The author writes that John made additions to the text of the source in order to reveal the symbolical meaning he saw in it. The author further states that John has not radically reinterpreted the traditional concept but he has rather built on it. The word ergon, according to the author, indicates how closely the works and words are related. It also more specifically reveals much about the relation between event and interpretation. The author mentions a number of men whose evaluations of the role of the miracles in the Gospel are more or less correct.
