The Gospel of John is a gospel unlike the other three. This gospel is not a narrative, even though there are narrative stories contained within it. The other three gospels were already in existence and had already been circulated at the time of the writing of this gospel.

As one reads the Gospel of John it becomes quickly apparent that this is not a simple gospel.
