The Gospel According to John, An Introduction Post #7
Unique to the Forth Gospel Before we pass on from this section, a word must be said concerning a few of the events that are only recorded by John. First, it is interesting to this writer that only John mentions the ministry of Jesus spanning four passover seasons (see 2:13; 5:1; 6:4; and 11:55). This gives Jesus a public ministry that lasts three and one half years and manifests Him as the Lamb of God; which title is given Him in the very first chapter, v29. Second, only the writer of the Fourth Gospel records the first cleansing of the temple, which took place at the beginning of Christ’s ministry (2:13-22). This first cleansing was to cleans the temple for His ministry and the second cleansing (Mt 21:12ff; Mk 11:15-18; Lk 19:45-47) for His sacrifice. Both cleansing occurred during a passover season. Third, only John records the washing of feet after the Last Supper (see 13:4-17): By recording this event John is giving us a portrait of Jesus as the servant King. Christians forever afterward have learned the lesson of servant leadership. The unique material of this Gospel makes up 92% of its content. I only wanted to mention these three events because they give the Gospel hues of color that do not grace the synoptics.
