  Article:   ABIDING IN LIFE: THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:   The concept of abiding underlines the unity between the believers and the members of the divine family as the quality of eternal life. John uses a complex form of this metaphor by depicting a threefold union between the believers, Jesus and God: the believers abide in Jesus, who abides in God. The metaphorical perception of this unity reflects on the functionality of the relation between God, Jesus and human beings; this is uncovered by an analysis that uses the insights of cognitive linguistics. 

Keywords: Gospel of John, metaphor, cognitive linguistics, abiding, love, relation, eternal life.
