Literary criticism, which has gained wide acceptance in the field of biblical studies, is still considered a new development in Johannine studies. This thesis attempts to examine the implications of literary criticism for Johannine studies through a detailed analysis of one section of the text, John 4:1-42, focusing on three aspects: the narrator, characters (particularly the Samaritan woman), and the function of time within the narrative. By looking at the ways in which each of these elements shapes the response of the reader, I attempt to explain how the text communicates meaning to the reader.
