SCHNELLE, Udo. The Semeia in the Gospel according to John. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp.1-6. ISSN 2305-0853. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ids.v49i1.1849.
The semeia in the Gospel of John are analysed, first in relation to other similar miracle narratives, especially in the synoptic gospels, and secondly in perspective of the broader narrative of John's Gospel. Clear links with some of the synoptic miracle narratives are discussed, questioning the 'semeia source' theory. This discussion is followed by a consideration of John's own interpretation of the miracles, exploring the interwovenness of the miracle stories with the theology of John, especially regarding the relation between the Father and the Son, the humanness of Jesus, the passion of Jesus and faith.
