Sample text

Given the aim of his gospel, that one believe so as to have life, it is fitting that the introduction present God to the reader precisely as the source of life, indeed of all that exists. With God, the Wordmade-flesh is involved in the existence of the world, in that he is identified as the one through whom the God of Israel created everything that is. Thus, since the Word eventually becomes flesh and is named Jesus, through Jesus comes life. The public life of Jesus, told in powerful stories and speeches, is, for John, to be seen as an aid to deepen the Christian's belief and hope that he will possess life: one who believes in Jesus will not lie dead forever.

With the grammatical emphasis given the word "beloved" and the repetition involved in the words "in whom I am well pleased" we have further reference to the servant, now as he is described in Isaiah 42, 1. The servant will carry out the will of God in preaching repentance to Israel (and indeed to the entire world). This allusion to Isaiah will be repeated again, before the passion, in the transfiguration of Jesus. In short, it is as the obedient servant that the Son, known to be divine, will demonstrate an essential quality of Son: obedience to his Father.

For what Jesus demands is often difficult, indeed even a cross. There are not large crowds rushing to hear Jesus. The story is severely limited to Jesus and the closest disciples. The atmosphere of joy and glory and wonder is for the most part gone. In its place there is anxiety and puzzlement. The story of the transfiguration reminds the reader not to forget during the grief that is to come the glory of Jesus. The image of the suffering son of man, which fills out the description of Jesus as Messiah, now becomes dominant.
