VAN DER WATT, J.. Johannine style: Some initial remarks on the functional use of repetition in the Gospel according to John. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp. 75-100. ISSN 1018-6441.

Some of the ways in which John uses the stylistic feature of repetition in his Gospel are investigated. His repetitive use of the concept "eternal life" is first focused on, pointing out the stylistic changes that occur as the gospel narrative progresses. Then the way in which the word "eternal" is repetitively linked to the word "life" is explored, showing a consistent pattern throughout the Gospel. The selective use and development of the frequently used concept of "love" is then scrutinised in the first twelve chapters of the Gospel, followed by an investigation of the functional use of the concept "to follow" in this Gospel. Reasons for these repetitions are then explored.
