Product Description

Culpepper begins with a close examination of the relationship between John and the Synoptics and a summary of John's distinctive thought and language. He then looks at the origins of the Gospel and the letters, the history of the Johannine community. After a brief orientation to narrative criticism, readers move to the traditional concerns of John's theology. The student is then led through the texts of the Gospel and the letters. The final chapter examines the challenges and potential of these writings as documents of faith.

Publisher's Description

In this volume, R. Alan Culpepper considers both the Gospel and the Letters of John.

The book begins with a close look at the relationship between John and the Synoptics and a summary of John's distinctive thought and language. The second chapter addresses the fascinating issues regarding the origins of the Gospel and the letters: authorship, sources, and composition. The history of the Johannine community is reviewed in chapter three. Chapter four interprets the plot of the Gospel and prepares the student to read John as literature by providing a brief orientation to narrative criticism.

The fifth chapter turns to more traditional concerns: John as theology. This chapter provides a digest of the Christology, theology, and eschatology of John. The sixth through the eighth chapters, the heart of the book, guide the student through a reading of the Gospel. The ninth chapter serves as an introduction to the Letters, noting especially their relationship to the Gospel. Each letter is treated in turn. The final chapter examines the challenges and potential of the Johannine literature as documents of faith.

"In previous writings Alan Culpepper has shown himself to be one of the best Johannine scholars of our time. He not only conveniently draws together his research but also shows himself to be an excellent teacher." --Raymond E. Brown
