Sorry for delay in posting - Uni run yesterday.

Carrying on the maybe controversial thoughts about the bible, I have a few issues with St John's gospel. Not the stories unique to it (wedding at Cana absolutely smacks of what Jesus would do) but the way it quotes His words. The Jesus of the other gospels gets right to the point, teaching in simple words and phrases, such as the classic "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's".

Some of the quotes in John have Jesus talking in long, convulted sentences, such as "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me". To me, the "voice" of Jesus sounds more like the voice or style of John (as seen in his epistles).

Is it me? Or does anybody else think the same?
