Book synopsis: This is a detailed scientific study not only on the concepts of Law and Love in the Gospel of John but also their relationship to each other. This research discovers and proves that the concept of Law in the Fourth Gospel finds its climax in the concept of Love there. The concept of Love finds its clear expression in the Love Commandment of Jesus (John 13,34; 15,12.17). All the occurrences of the terms - Law and Love - in the Fourth Gospel are analysed.
Contents: Terms of Law in the Fourth Gospel - Symbols of Law in the Fourth Gospel - Love in the Fourth Gospel - The Relationship between Law and Love in the Fourth Gospel.
