Jesus Risen in Our Midst mines the Resurrection Narrative of John's gospel as a rich resource for understanding and developing Christian spirituality. In this series of essays, which can be read independently of one another, Scripture scholar Sandra Schneiders draws out especially fascinating insights on
- the place of the Resurrection in the overall structure of the Gospel of John
- the important structure of John 20, which presents a series of episodes that are internally related to each other and constitute a distinctive synthesis of Christian spirituality
- what the Resurrection story reveals about the New Covenant promised by Jeremiah and Ezekiel
- the anthropology and eschatology that is operative in John's account of the Resurrection
- the distinction in John between the Glorification and the Resurrection of Jesus
"Those of us familiar with the copious, original, and creative work of Sandra Schneiders have long waited for a book on John 20, a text that has shadowed much of what she has said and written since her dissertation in 1975. This book provides us with what she wishes to share, and we have every reason to be grateful.
"A collection of already published studies focuses on matters of crucial importance for contemporary biblical scholarship, theology, and spirituality. In the first half of the book, her reading of John 20 clarifies the importance of the bodily presence of the glorified Jesus for an understanding of the Christian Church as Jesus Risen in Our Midst. The second half of the study reflects profoundly on the Johannine understanding of Jesus' death as taking away the sins of the world and the commissioning of the Spirit-filled Church to continue Jesus' mission by forgiving sin and by embracing those who have been forgiven. Again: to be Jesus Risen in Our Midst.
"These questions are faced with clarity and depth, in close discussion with some of the most provocative thinkers of our time. By means of these essays, approaching John 20 from different angles, Sandra Schneiders states and restates her rich and singular understanding of what God has done for us in and through Jesus Christ."
