Definition

In the canon of the New Testament, the fourth gospel of John is uniquely different from the other three, known as the Synoptics ("seen together"). Mark, Matthew, and Luke have parallel ministries and methods of relating the story of Jesus of Nazareth as an apocalyptic prophet of Israel. John's Jesus is a mysterious theos aner ("man from heaven") whose speeches are framed within the discourse of Greek philosophy.
