For example, John includes unique stories and teachings of Jesus, such as the wedding at Cana, the raising of Lazarus, and the "I am" sayings of Jesus. Additionally, John emphasizes the divinity of Jesus and explores deeper theological concepts, such as the concept of the Word becoming flesh. Therefore, it can be said that John's Gospel fills in details that are not present in the other three Gospels.
