Abstract
U prvom dijelu ovog istraživanja o znamenjima u Četvrtom evanđelju, nakon kratkog povijesnog pregleda razumijevanja čuda, opisuju se različitosti između čudesa u sinoptičkim evanđeljima i čudesa u Ivanovu evanđelju. U drugom dijelu, pregledom Isusovih čuda koja su opisana u Ivanovu evanđelju (2,1-12; 4,43-54; 5,1-18; 6,1-15; 6,16-21; 9,1-41; 11,33-44), ukazano je na opravdanost njihova specifičnog naziva znamenja. U trećem dijelu rada, detaljnom egzegetskom analizom obuhvaćeno je svih sedam znamenja u Ivanovu evanđelju. Ishod toga istraživanja je da sva znamenja Ivanova evanđelja imaju istovjetnu svrhu, a to je objava Božje slave u Isusu. Ustvari, nakon objave Božje slave na Sinaju (Izl 24,16), Šatoru sastanka (Izl 40,35) i Hramu (1Kr 8,11), Božja nazočnost se definitivno objavljuje u Isusovoj osobi. To je Božja slava u Logosu koji se ušatorio (usp. Iv 1,14) među ljudima. Drugo svojstvo svih sedam ivanovskih znamenja je odgovor vjere u Isusa kod onih koji vide Isusova znamenja. Konačno, naznačena funkcija čudesa u Ivanovu evanđelju opravdava specifičnost njihovog naziva znamenjima, za razliku od čudesa u sinoptičkim evanđeljima koja su u funkciji svjedočenja dolaska Kraljevstva Božjeg.

Parallel abstract (English)
After a brief general outline about miracles, the first chapter of this study describes differences between the miracles in the Synoptic gospels and the miracles in the Gospel of John. In the second part of the research, it is stressed the explanation of a specific use of expression signs for miracles in the seven texts of the Gospel of John (2:1-12; 4:43-54; 5:1- 18; 6:1-15; 6:16-21; 9:1-41; 11:33-44). The third part of this study embraces a detailed exegetical analysis of all seven signs (miracles) in John`s gospel. The results of the research identify that the seven signs have a common purpose. It is the revelation of God`s glory in Jesus. More precisely, after the manifestation of God`s glory on Sinai (Ex 40:35), in the Tent of Meeting and the Temple (1Kings 8:11), God`s presence is definitely manifested in the person of Jesus Christ. It is the glory of God in the Logos that “made his dwelling among us“ (Jn 1:14). Another important characteristic of all seven signs in John is the faith as a response of those who witness the signs of Jesus. Finally, the function of “miracles” in the gospel of John justifies their specific designation as “signs”. In the Synoptic gospels, differently to John, the purpose of miracles is testimony of the arrival of the Kingdom of God.
