Das Wirken Jesu in Galilša bei Johannes: Eine strukturale Analyse der Intertextualitšt des vierten Evangeliums mit den Synoptikern

Description: Published in German. The relationship of Johnís Gospel to the Synoptics has been one of the major problems of gospel exegesis since Origen. Today, after the dissolution of the consensus which has ruled in biblical studies since P. Gardner-Smith, this relationship is in need of redefinition, to which the author of this book wishes to contribute. Zbynĕk Garskż analyzes the intertextuality of the Fourth Gospel with the Synoptics by using new methods of text linguistics and by showing through the example of Jesusí ministry in Galilee in the Gospel of John that the solution of this issue by Origen in fact corresponds to Johnís intention. The fourth evangelist is a careful exegete of the Synoptics and wrote his gospel in a literary dialogue with the three older gospels, which he rereads allegorically. This kind of intertextual writing can be described as "intertextual irony," a term established by U. Eco, a well-known phenomenon since antiquity which characterizes the allegory and allegorizing.
