The entire landscape of the New Testament in addition to being dominated by the reality of God, is likewise dominated by the reality of the Roman Empire. Scholar Tom Thatcher in Grater than Caesar: Christology and Empire in the Fourth Gospel argues that the nature of Christ should be seen as set over and against the power and authority in the fourth gospel. Believing that what John says about Jesus establishes him as a politically subversive individual who takes on an oppressive Roman system, Thatcher's argument is lucid and compelling.
