The Nations, the World and the Jews in John.pdf

The term "nations" appears 39 times in the four gospels, with Matthew being the most "evangelistic" in his references. John uses the term "world!" (kosmos) to refer to peoples from all nations, including the Israelite nation, and represents an enlarged vision of the world in relation to God's redemptive purposes. John's use of the term "Jew" is more than ten times more than any synoptic gospel, addressing a worldwide situation where Jews have been expelled from Jerusalem. John's gospel represents both the rejection and acceptance of Jesus by the Jews, with no rancor towards them. The world, including Jews and Romans, joined together in opposition to Jesus, but God sovereignly summons people from the world to come to the Son.
