All 14 verses in English. Help please!!!
You will find a wealth of information on the structure of John at our website here:
Start with a Sectional outline of John on this page: http://adultera.awardspace.com/SYNOP/outline-john.html
Then there's the Old Testament Quotation Structure in John: OT Quotes in JN
Take a look at the color charts showing the parallelism between John and Mark here: Synoptic 7
Also, you will want to know about the CHIASTIC structure of John: CHIASM and Jn 8:1-11
Finally, there are thematic structures in John that can be diagrammed: MOSES and Jn 8:1-11
And this only scratches the surface in terms of diagrams for John.
