The Gospel of John is chronologically the last canonical book of the Bible and the years 98-100 AD are currently considered to be the time of its final editing in a written form. Many speeches and dialogues– although presented within the context of deep theological thought – do not lose their original oral character. This paper consists of an outline of this orality on various levels: from the general point of view,its appearance in the Bible, in the New Testament and in the Gospel of John, to the final detailed description of the selected examples. An important point which belongs to the field of orality research isthe possibility of distinguishing the contributions of various groups and stages of formation of the Gospel on the basis of its orality. The elements of three such traditions – Jewish, Samaritan and Hellenistic– are further elaborated in this paper.
