An analysis of the Gospel of John can best be written by first comparing it to the other three gospels in the Bible.  These gospels are referred to as the “synoptic gospels” because they are very much alike to one another, only differing in the personal perceptions of events by the writers.  The synoptic gospels were more historical relays of information whereas the Gospel of John is more of an interpretive work.  An analysis of the Gospel of John may detail the ways in which the author attempts to portray the spiritual identity of his protagonist, Jesus Christ.,In his efforts to describe Jesus as the Son of God among the people, John uses a number of literary devices to accomplish this task.  Outlining these literary devices, which include allusion, irony and double meaning, will be an essential element of an analysis of the Gospel of John. Additionally, as in other analyses, an analysis of the Gospel of John should not fail to inspect the author’s own identity and what he personally brings to the text as well as his style of writing and the format of the work.,If you happen to be very familiar with the Gospel of John and acquainted with it as a liturgical part of your personal religion, you may find it difficult to approach writing an analysis of the Gospel of John from the standpoint of simply another school assignment.  If this is the case, you may find reading analyses written on other works of literature as an aid in writing your own analysis of the Gospel of John. Examples of other analyses include:  an analysis of “The Tale of Genji”,  an analysis of Amy Tan’s “Mother Tongue”, and an analysis of “The Gettysburg Address”. Viewing these analyses as well as examples of other analyses on the Gospel of John should help you with the literary side of this project.  Remember to use reliable source material on the Gospel of John in order to present the most accurate presentation in your analysis of the Gospel of John.
