Abstract

Ellipse creation events in the Gospel story according to John
The narrative of the Fourth Gospel can be read from different viewpoints. From the perspective of the creation motif the unfolding of the story can be compared to an ellipse, emphasising two focal creation moments: the incarnation of the Logos (1:1-18) and the bestowment of the Spirit onto the disciples (20:21-23). These two creation moments are part of a literary comparison between creation and "new creation".
