John 5  

John did not present a chronological narrative of the life of Jesus, but sought to show the deity of Jesus.

John was not only seeking to strengthen the faith of second-generation believers and bring about faith in others.

John emphasized Jesus Christ as "the Son of God," fully God and fully man, contrary to the doctrine which saw the "Christ-spirit" as coming upon the human Jesus at His baptism and leaving him at the crucifixion.

New Testament
The New Testament is the second major part of the Christian biblical canon, the first part being the Old Testament, based on the Hebrew Bible. The New Testament discusses the teachings and person of Jesus, as well as events in first-century Christianity. Christians regard both the Old and New Testaments together as sacred scripture.

The New Testament consists of 27 books which serve as a source for Christian theology and morality. It is an anthology, a collection of Christian works written in the Greek language within the first 100-years of Jesus, at different times by various writers, who were early Jewish followers of Jesus.

E.P. Sanders, The Historical Figure Of Jesus
On the Gospel of John, he said:

It is impossible to think that Jesus spent his short ministry teaching in two such completely different ways, conveying such different contents, and there were simply two traditions, each going back to Jesus, one transmitting 50% of what he said and another one the other 50%, with almost no overlaps. Consequently, for the last 150 or so years scholars have had to choose.

They have almost unanimously, and I think entirely correctly, concluded that the teaching of the historical Jesus is to be sought in the synoptic gospels and that JOHN [Gospel of] represents an advanced theological development, in which meditations on the person and work of Christ are presented in the first person, as if Jesus said them.

John   |   Chapter: 5   |   Verses: 47
Chapter:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21
1 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
2 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
3 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
4 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
5 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
6 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
7 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
8 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
9 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
10 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
11 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
12 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
13 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
14 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
15 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
16 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
17 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
18 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
19 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
20 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
21 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
22 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
23 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
25 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
26 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
27 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
28 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
29 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
30 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
31 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
32 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
33 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
34 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
35 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
36 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
37 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
38 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
39 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
40 I receive not honour from men.
41 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
42 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
43 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
44 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
45 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
46 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

3. Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context
4. Synthesis - A comparison with similar Texts to give a better contextual understanding
