Summary

This is, primarily, a linguistic investigation into the possibility that the Johannine farewell discourse is the product of multiple hands. Current critical assumptions are shown to be unlikely, based on the conventions of ancient literature and the literary conventions of participant movement in the rest of the Fourth Gospel. The conclusion reached in this work is that the farewell discourse should be considered a unity.
