The originality of the Johannine presentation of the gospel has long been recognized by commentators and has been the subject of endless research and discussion. It is indeed impossible for any one man to master all the literature on the subject. The originality of the Johannine presentation of the gospel has long been recognized by commentators and has been the subject of endless research and discussion. It is indeed impossible for any one man to master all the literature on the subject. The discussion has ranged over a wide spectrum of problems, such as the date and authenticity of the gospel, its sources, literary unity, and historical value, its dependence on or independence from the synoptic gospels, the influence of the Hellenistic world on the author’s thought, his Jewish background, and his own purpose ans personal contribution to the presentation of Jesus in the gospel. All this study has not been fruitless, so that one is justified in speaking of a new look in Johannine studies today, even among Catholic commentators. Since the publication of the John Rylands Papyrus 457 and more so since the discovery of the Qumran Literature, no one today hesitates about dating the gospel towards the close of the first century A.D. at the latest. The exact identity of the author is not as burning a question today as it was fifty years ago. On the one hand, literary authorship by John the son of Zebedee is no longer insisted upon even by Catholic authors.
